A Free fall from height h

  1. Dec 3, 2016 #1
    I would need some help with my homework. I am lost.

    Solve free fall from height h to the Earth´s surface in the place with geographical width φ. During solving, omit addiction gravitational acceleration to the distance. (consider a homogeneous gravity field) and variables which are including angular speed ω consider for much less then variables including gt. Consider h=100m and
    φ=0 degree.

    The result should be y(t)=(gωt^3cosφ)/3. Bud I am not sure, how to get it. I am sure I have to use Coriolisi´s force. But as I said, I am lost.
    Thank you for your help and sorry for my bad english.
