I received this problem this week and no one in my class has been able to solve it. We don't need to solve it exactly, but we should provide a conceptual answer. I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me out.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

-The apparent weight of a person may vary in different latitudes due to the rotation of the earth. If the apparent weight is the force that the scale makes on the person, determine the variation in the apparent weight of a person at the equator and at one of the poles.

THANKS!
