Suppose a meteor of mass 3.30 1013 kg is moving at 32.0 km/s relative to the center of the Earth and strikes the Earth. Suppose the meteor creates the maximum possible decrease in the angular speed of the Earth by moving toward the west and striking a point on the equator tangentially. What is the change in the angular speed of the Earth due to this collision?
