Is there an intuitive explanation for the Southward force caused by the Coriolis Effect on rotating spheres?
From the Coriolis Effect article on Wikipedia, the following with regard to the Coriolis Effect on a rotating sphere: By setting vn = 0, it can be seen immediately that (for positive φ and ω) a ...
There are videos and articles on the internet which demonstrate that water flows down a flush clockwise in Northern Hemisphere and anti-clockwise in Southern Hemisphere. Here are a couple of links ...
The Coriolis effect is a well-known phenomenum, important in meteorology and ocean current forecasting. In addition to location (latitude), it depends on velocity and duration. I assume that ...
Consider we launch a cannonball due south from a point at 45 degrees latitude in the Northern Hemisphere (e.g the point defined with the co-ordinate system on this diagram). The cannonball travels for ...
I need to simulate some body, thrown at some angle to the horizon and at some azimuth. What would be $x(t)$, $y(t)$ and $z(t)$ involving $g(h)$, air resistance (with $\rho(h)$), Coriolis effect and ...
