- Homework Statement
- Consider a large simple pendulum that is located at a latitude of 55 degrees N and is swinging in a north-south direction with points A and B being the northernmost and southernmost points of the swing, respectively. A stationary (with respect to the fixed stars) observer is looking directly down on the pendulum at the moment shown in the figure. The Earth is rotating once every 23 h and 56 min. What are the directions (in terms of N, E, W, and S) and the magnitudes of the velocities of the Earth at points A and B as seen by the observer?

- Relevant Equations
- any

I don't understand the question. how am I supposed to find the magnitudes and directions of the velocity from the figure?
