## Coriolis Frequency Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
coriolis_frequency = 2*Angular Speed of the Earth*sin(earth-station latitude)
f = 2*ΩE*sin(λe)
This formula uses 1 Functions, 2 Variables
Functions Used
sin - Trigonometric sine function, sin(Angle)
Variables Used
Angular Speed of the Earth - Angular Speed of the Earth's Rotation (Measured in Radian per Second)
earth-station latitude - earth-station latitude is the coordinates of earth-station (Measured in Degree)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Angular Speed of the Earth: 100 Radian per Second --> 100 Radian per Second No Conversion Required
earth-station latitude: 10 Degree --> 0.1745329251994 Radian (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
f = 2*ΩE*sin(λe) --> 2*100*sin(0.1745329251994)

## What is Wind Stress?

In Physical Oceanography and Fluid Dynamics, the wind stress is the shear stress exerted by the wind on the surface of large bodies of water – such as oceans, seas, estuaries and lakes. It is the force component parallel to the surface, per unit area, as applied by the wind on the water surface.

## How to Calculate Coriolis Frequency?

Coriolis Frequency calculator uses coriolis_frequency = 2*Angular Speed of the Earth*sin(earth-station latitude) to calculate the Coriolis Frequency, The Coriolis Frequency also called the Coriolis parameter or Coriolis coefficient, is equal to twice the rotation rate Ω of the Earth multiplied by the sine of the latitude φ. Coriolis Frequency and is denoted by f symbol.
