When launching rockets into space, they start straight but begin to lean, I assume due to the Earth's rotation. For something on a much smaller scale, such as a golf tee, is there a measurable ...
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 ...
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 ...
