This need a few words of explanation,
but does not require any mathematical
knowledge beyond simple arithmetic. The
acceleration of gravity meana the speed

celeration of gravity at the earth's sur
face is about thirty-two feet per second;

bers. 4.0"0 miles., which Is, tha distance"
from the surface, to the center of the
globe. Vncc the acValeratlun of gravity
Is express! In feet, we must put the
radius into foet also, before we can make
the calculation. This Is done by multi
plying i.nw by 5,2X0. the number of feet
In a mile. This product Is 21.120.fl00. Now,
the fornfula tells us to double this num
ber, which accordingly becomes 4:',2in,00,
and ther to multiply by thirty-two, the
acceleration of gravity. Thus we gnt,
finally, l.Xil.CW.cOA. Ueferrlng again to
the formula, we sre thnt this represents
the square of tho velocity and so we
must extract the square foot of 1.1.A..
0"0 In order to obtain the simple. e!oclty.
Without carrying the calculation out tc
I the laM figure, we find that the square
1 root required Is 36.7W). This Is the velocity
expressf d In feet per second, nnd dividing
ny o..wy, wo una tnai 11 amounts to very
nearly seven miles perecoinl.
fceven miles per second, then, Is the
velocity with which a Imrty falling from
an Infinite distance would strike -the sur-fs-e
of tho earth, and, conversely, tho
same velocity, would have to bo Imparted
to a projcrtllo phot straight up from the
earth In order that it might go to an in
finite distance from the enrth. We neg
lect the effect of the resistance that the
atmoephero would offer at the start.
Aa to the fcrce Involved that would
depend upon the mass, or weight, of th
body. If it weighed ono ton the momen
tum, as seven miles per second, would
be 72,920,000 fot-puunda.
The answer to your second question Is
that centrifugal force is perfectly cap
able of overcoming gravity If the earth's
rate of rotation be sufficiently acceler
ated. The centrifugal force Increases as
the square of the velocity of .relation.
The formula Is: Cantrlfogal force equals
the velocity squared, divided by the
radius. In the case of tho earth tho cen
trifugal force, at the equator, amounts,
with tho actdal velocity of rotation, to
1,289th of tho force of 'gravity. Then.
If the velocity were Increased seventeen
fold tho centrifugal force would balance
gravity, because the square of seventeen
is 283. Any Increase of velocity beyond
that amount would send thing's flying
off the earth from around the equator.
At points north or south of the equator
the centrifugal force at a given latitude
Is ascertained by multiplying the equa
torial centrifugal force by the square of
the cosine of the latitude.
