I cant get the right value out for w. the angular velocity, which is 7.3*10^-5 rad/sec.
An aircraft travels a straight line from west to east along the equator at a
constant speed of 100 ms'. Taking the Earth to be a sphere of radius
6400 km, evaluate the angular velocity.
im quite sure that the answer i quoted is right. v=r X w. Would it have something to do with this cross product. Around the w quoted is a modulus sign.
well, i dunno. masters and i got the same answer. also, cross-products are only defined for 3-dimensional vectors. what would the vectors be here?
