How to Calculate Magnitude of the Horizontal Component of Coriolis Acceleration?
Magnitude of the Horizontal Component of Coriolis Acceleration calculator uses coriolis_acceleration = 2*Angular Speed of the Earth*sin(earth-station latitude)*Horizontal Speed across the Earth’s Surface to calculate the Horizontal Component of Coriolis Acceleration, The Magnitude of the Horizontal Component of Coriolis Acceleration is defined as the acceleration due to the rotation of the earth, experienced by particles (water parcels, for example) moving along the earth's surface. Horizontal Component of Coriolis Acceleration and is denoted by a_{C} symbol.
How to calculate Magnitude of the Horizontal Component of Coriolis Acceleration using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Magnitude of the Horizontal Component of Coriolis Acceleration, enter Angular Speed of the Earth (Ω_{E}), earth-station latitude (λe) and Horizontal Speed across the Earth’s Surface (U) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Magnitude of the Horizontal Component of Coriolis Acceleration calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1736.482 = 2*100*sin(0.1745329251994)*50.
