**drwls**, Monday, September 26, 2011 at 7:41am(R2 -R1)*w, where

w is the angular velocity of the Earth in radians/s

R2 and R1 are the distances of the top and bottom of the building from the center of the Earth.

Note that R2 - R1 is the height of the building, so you do not need to use the Earth's radius in the calculation.
