Homework Help: physics

Posted by Anonymous on Thursday, December 15, 2011 at 4:26pm.

An early major objection to the idea that
Earth is spinning on its axis was that Earth
would turn so fast at the equator that people
would be thrown into space.
Given : radius earth = 6.37 10^6 m ,
mass earth = 5.98 10^24 kg ,
radius moon = 1.74 10^6 m , and
g = 9.8 m/s^2.
Show the error in this logic by calculating
the speed of a 90.6 kg person at the equator
