Our weight if the earth spins faster.... I came up with this problem in a competition. They asked what would be the effect on our weight on the earth if the earth spun any faster. Thinking deep, I came up to a conclusion that people who live nearer to the equator than to the poles find their weight reduced since any faster spinning of the earth would push us slightly out, due to centrifugal force. Am i right?? would there be anymore effect??
