About Coriolis again

By writing this article I want to give some more accurate calculation of the Coriolis acceleration on the Globe. I would like to prove, this way, that you cannot detect Coriolis on Earth because the planet is not spinning. I want to check an affirmation I made time ago. It’s about an airplane taking off from the north pole and from there flying toward the equator in an exclusively south direction. While keeping its speed[…]

Smoke columns, waterfalls and Coriolis

Surfing the net you often happen to notice images of smoke columns getting out from volcanos and raising up to great altitudes. This is a phenomenon  by many considered to be  a clear evidence  the Earth is not spinning. Many people could  get the same impression in relation with high waterfalls: the fact that water falls on a straight line and doesn’t bend would be a clear consequence of the Earth being stationary and not[…]

Coriolis Effect proves the Earth is not moving.

What s Coriolis acceleration? This is a phisical phenomenon happening to an object moving in a rectilinear way on a rotating surface. Look at the image: in the first picture the ball is moving  over a rectilinear line on a stationary platform. The ball doesn’t resent of any lateral acceleration. When the platform starts  rotating, the ball starts bending its trajectory and the result will prove to be a non rectilinear movement. This side acceleration is[…]
