Take into account the Earth's rotational speed (1 rev/day) and determine the necessary speed, with respect to the Earth, for a rocket to escape if fired from the Earth at the equator in a direction a) eastward; b) westward; c) vertically upward.

The answers are 1.07 x10^4 m/s, 1.17 x10^4 m/s and 1.12 x10^4 m/s. I got c but I don't understand what to do for a and b.
