I think this is an interesting question and it happens to be a problem I have to solve. If the Earth rotated about its axis at the same rate it does right now how would that affect the gravity at the equator and the north pole?

I personally do not think it will change it because I believe that the gravity it is function of lattitude size and the rate of rotation.
