Homework Help: Oceanography

Posted by Krysten on Sunday, March 21, 2010 at 9:06pm.

I have an exam in oceanography coming up and I'm having a little trouble understanding directions. For example in my review sheet he asks question like this:

In what compass direction does the coriolis force act in the following situations:

An object moving west at 22 degrees north


An object moving southeast at 68 degrees south

Can anyone explain to me in a simpler way how to find the directions coriolis acts in?

Thank you
