Coriolis Effect
http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=1437&ref=Feed
The Coriolis effect is a force that modifies the trajectory of falling object on Earth. It is due to the rotation of the referential and, thereby, it is not a real force. The mathematical expression of this effect is obtained from the crossproduct of Earth's angular velocity (omega) with the object's linear velocity (v). The exact equation is F = 2m(v x omega). This worksheet demonstrates the action of the Coriolis effect on a projectile launched from our planet. It includes a graphic of the projectile's path as well as a procedure that determines how far the projectile will travel.<img src="/view.aspx?si=1437/coriolis_sm.jpg" alt="Coriolis Effect" align="left"/>The Coriolis effect is a force that modifies the trajectory of falling object on Earth.
