Hi all, I'd like to understand what would happen to a mass which is dropped at the north/south pole. Let's say you raised a mass to a certain height over a certain point, which we will call A. Point A is at the center of the north pole. The height at which the mass is raised is such that it will take over 10 mins to hit the ground, let's say it's 6km high above point A. When the mass is dropped would it land on point A? Let's assume that there no external forces to alter the descent in anyway. We can assume that the mass falls in a vacuum. Thanks for any comments.
