1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The flattening of the Earth is defined as f⊕ ≡ 1 - (Rp - Re) where Re is the radius of the equator and Rp is half of the distance between the North Pole and the South Pole. Estimate the flattening of the Earth. 2. Relevant equations Fg = Gm1m2/r2 3. The attempt at a solution apole = GME/Rp2 aequator = GME/RE2 = ω2RE How do I approach this problem, I'm so clueless. How do I carry on from here?
