Because the distance around the planet is about 25,000 miles at the equator and zero miles at the poles, the linear velocity has to be much higher at the equator.<br /><br />Gerd Danihttps://www.blogger.com/profile/00302578976463459008noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8269286102126288719.post-6550749287312830172023-04-19T00:11:54.856+02:002023-04-19T00:11:54.856+02:00Please, THIS IS AN ASTRO SCIENCE PAGE!!! Rotationa...Please, THIS IS AN ASTRO SCIENCE PAGE!!! Rotational speeds are measured in units of turns per unit of time, or angles per unit of time. If an object isc rotating around an axis, its rotational speed is the same no matter where.<br /><br />This statement is wrong: "The planet's rotational speed varies by location". No, the tangent or linear speeds varies by location, the rotational speed is THE SAME. AirAusquinhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/13525853235042110218noreply@blogger.com
