What would happen if the Earth stopped rotating?

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.

Variation of acceleration due to gravity with depth. A doubt.

Rajkumar asks: “accelaration due to gravity decrease on depth of earth with the relation of g’=g(1-2h/R). but with relation of g=GM/(R*R)  g increase.
Answer:
When the object is on the surface or above it, the entire mass of the earth attracts it. But when it is inside, the net attraction towards CENTRE is provided only by the mass of […]
