A scientist is making a precise measurement of g at a certain point in the Indian Ocean (on the equator) by timing the swing of a pendulum of accurately known construction. To provide a stable base, the measurements are conducted in a submerged submarine. It is observed that a slightly different value for g is obtained when the submarine is in motion. What is the change in g, (g'-g) in mm/s2, if the submarine is moving east at 11.3 kph? (Include the sign of the change in your answer.) Use as the equatorial radius of the Earth 6378.2 km(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i have no clue how to do this any help would be appreciated
