CENTRIFUGAL. oblate spheroid. gravity increasing. g*. R 3. centrifugal increasing. F gravitation /m = - GM r. r 2. gravitation. g. R 2. F centrifugal /m = W 2 rR. R. THIS IS ONE OF THE APPARENT ACCELERATIONS!. r. R 1. g = F gravitation /m + F centrifugal /m.
Fgravitation/m = -GMr
Fcentrifugal/m = W2rR
THIS IS ONE OF THE APPARENT ACCELERATIONS!
g =Fgravitation/m + Fcentrifugal/m
The reduction in gravitation (apparent gravity) leads to an equatorwardcomponent of gravity and hence a shearing stress which deforms the
earth. Hence, the equator is uphill!
Why doesn’t the object roll toward the pole?
