A rotating ball with rotational angular velocity ω= (0,0,_{ω}z) . What is the direction of the coriolis force with the following velocities: Va = (_{V}x,_{V}y,0) ; Vb= (_{V}x, 0,_{V}z)

2. Relevant equations

All i know about coriolis force is F= 2m(vχω). The question even doesn't say any angles. So i am not too sure if the question is right.
