The speed of an object on earth’s surface near equator is approximately is 1670 kilometers/hour. So, if the earth stops rotating suddenly, the objects on the surface of earth which are unbound will be thrown eastwards tangentially with the speed of rotation of earth.

Mohak Tandon Asks – “
“Is the acceleration due to gravity different in south pole and north pole?”
As per theory, acceleration due to gravity changes with altitude, depth and latitude.
If we consider that the variation of g with latitude is caused by rotation of earth only, then the value of g will be same for both […]
