Hello, I got a question about the coriolis force. It is probably super simple, but I am still not getting it: The coriolis force, forces my particle onto a circle trajectory, but I am not sure why (yes, I can show it mathematically, but I want to understand what is happening). When I am moving a particle to the north, I get my coriolis force because the Earth is moving underneath me. So it is obious, why my particle is moving eastwards, but how do I get a circle ? If I really move from the equator towards north, my particle will move to the right, but for a circle movement, I would have to move my particle somehow south (because otherwise I would still move to the north) So, where is my mistake ?
