comment Why does the atmosphere rotate along with the earth?
Are you proposing the heliocentric model is accurate, or do I misunderstand your answer?

Gravity also doesn't "effect" anything. It does have a tendency to "affect" things sometimes.

comment What is the inertia caused by angular momentum when twisted on it's rotating axis?
" how I would quantify the affect of this angular momentum when trying to bank the aircraft 20 degrees over a course of 5 seconds". I realize that the most true effects of this are more complicated when considering the 3rd axes of rotation, but I think we can confidently put this into terms of approximated difference in aileron pressure of the flight control in terms of theta, where theta is the speed of the wheels spin

Right, the question was about 20 degrees of bank. Bank alone in a small aircraft will not bring you into a turn, you will also need rudder motion to enter into a full turn.

comment What is the inertia caused by angular momentum when twisted on it's rotating axis?
Thanks for the great response! Although I'm not sure I fully explained my question, because this should in fact be a 2d mechanics problem. You seem to be assuming that the plane will be turning around the Y axis, but that should not be the case. I simply want to know what the effect of the angular momentum would be when rolling 20 degrees of bank, making a coordinated turn. I'll edit my question for clarity.

@ja72 I'm pretty confident I would understand an analytical solution, I would be happy to see one. It has been a year since I've had a physics class

@ja72 I fixed the link. I realize that the terminology isn't quite right, maybe you could edit the post?

comment Displacement of a Rock Thrown Overboard
Hmm, I see your point. Should I delete this question?

comment Displacement of a Rock Thrown Overboard
I submit that this question is better in quality and should not be closed, because it poses a hypothesis, as opposed to just wanting an answer.

comment Calculate Rotational Intertia
Thank you. I enjoy physics, but workload from other classes has caused me to have a trying grasp on rotation. Thanks for helping
