1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A body is thrown as shown in the picture (0°<x<90°). In what direction the body will the body move in relation to the point it was thrown from  east or west (assume the distance between the point the body was thrown from and the point it lands at is no more than a few meters).
2. Relevant equations
ma_{R}=ma_{I}2mωxuRmω^{2}r
3. The attempt at a solution
I got really confused, I know which way the earth will rotate but I can't understand how to find the direction. Can anyone give me an explanation? I know which way Coriolis force will act but still can't figure this out.
