whether a stone thrown upword with very high speed fall to the same point to the ground?
If yes then why even the earth is in motion?

  • science -

    if the speed is high enough, the stone will in fact not fall back to the same spot, due to coriolis effect caused by the earth's rotation.

    Under everyday conditions, the deflection is so small that it makes no practical difference, and the object appears to fall right back to where it started.
