Why is a projectile fired in the northern hemisphere towards the Earth’s North Pole deflected to the east? Where will the projectile deflected towards the equator? Where will the projectile fired in the southern hemisphere in the meridian direction go?
The cause of the phenomenon is the action of the Coriolis force arising from the rotation of the Earth and the movement of the body in the meridian direction. In the northern hemisphere, the deflection of a moving body always occurs to the right, and in the southern hemisphere – to the left, if you look in the direction of movement of the body.
