Rotation of the Earth

Calculate the circumferential speed of the Earth's surface at a latitude of 61°​​. Consider a globe with a radius of 6378 km.

Result

peripheral speed:  224.9 m/s

Solution:

v=26378π243.6cos61=224.9 m/sv = \dfrac{ 2\cdot6378\pi }{ 24\cdot3.6} \cos 61 ^\circ = 224.9 \ \text{m/s}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
