    Answer:

    Explanation:

    Yes, If tangential velocity is your reference frame

    If R is the radius of earth

    and ω is the angular velocity = (2π / (24(3600)) radians/s

    Tangential velocity at the equator is

    v = ωR = (2π / (24(3600))(6 370 000 m) = 463 m/s

    Tangential velocity at a point half way to the pole (45° latitude)

    v = ωRcosΘ = 463cos45 = 328 m/s
