Coriolis Effect

The Coriolis Effect : Objects are deflected to the right in the Northern Hemisphere. Objects are deflected to the left in the Southern Hemisphere. WHY????The wider equator section of the earth rotates faster than the poles.

Cool Class

The Coriolis force was first recognized in 1835 by Gustave-Gaspard Coriolis, a French engineer and mathematician. He determined that fluids, such as air and water, will not flow in straight lines on the earth’s surface, but instead bend to either the left or the right. This happens for two reasons: first, the earth is round, and second, the earth is spinning on its axis. The combination of these two conditions causes differences in how fast an object moves depending on its distance north or south the equator. Because the diameter of the earth is greatest at the equator and smallest at the poles, an object at the equator has to travel farther and faster to complete one rotation of the earth in the same amount of time as an object at the poles.
