I was wondering what would happen to all the components on the surface of the Earth if the Earth suddenly stops rotating but does not stop revolving.
Does Gravity / curved space cause rotation? Meaning, if a spaceship is heading not directly toward Earth, but slightly off to one side, and when finally being close to the Earth it falls into earth ...
Consider a stick with a (ball-shaped) weight at the end of it. Let's say this stick is in a state of rotation (it's floating in vacuum) and is also in a state of translational motion. Consider a ...
I would like to know the expected behavior of the Gravity under the following mentioned imaginary experiment: What if we dig a well or a boar or a straight hole (say, its diameter is 100 meter) ...
Suppose we have a cylinder of mass $m$, radius $R$ and height $h$ in rotation with speed $\omega$ around its symmetry axis with no friction (ideal situation). I'd expect this cylinder to emit ...
