Answer:The tangential speed of Fayetteville, NC is 1372.2 km/h.Explanation:To find the tangential speed at the latitude 35 °N, first, we need to calculate the radius at that latitude :Where:: is the equatorial radius = 6380 km

θ = 35 °

Now, the tangential speed is:Therefore, the tangential speed of Fayetteville, NC is 1372.2 km/h.I hope it helps you!
