Angular Momentum Problem, Please Help!!! 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data We can alter equations s=omega*v*t^2 and a_cor= 2omega*v for use on Earth by considering only the component of v perpendicular to the axis of rotation. From the figure (Intro 1 figure) , we see that this is v * cos lambda for a vertically falling object, where lambda is the latitude of the place on the Earth. If a lead ball is dropped vertically from a 200 m-high tower in Florence, Italy latitude 44 how far from the base of the tower is it deflected by the Coriolis force? Caption: Object of mass m falling vertically to Earth at a latitude lambda. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I am quite confused by the Coriolis effect and would appreciate any pointers on how to approach this problem.
