1) what is the radius of the circle as a function of V for the coriolis force?

2) Evaluate this radius for object on surface of the earth at 33 degree north moving at 5 mph. and find the magnitude of Coriolis force as a function of V....

Thanks

Find the equation that tells you the strength of the Coriolis force and set it equal to the centripetal force.
