AOS 100 Homework #6 1) A hockey puck is placed on a flat, infinite sheet of ice in the Southern Hemisphere. It is then given a slight push to the west. The sheet of ice is frictionless so that the speed of the puck after the push is constant. What horizontal force acts on the puck after the push? Describe (or draw) the path the puck takes after the push. Explain your description (or drawing). The Coriolis force acts to the right of motion (at right angles) in the N.Hemisphere. However, it works oppositely in the S.Hemisphere; it acts to the left of motion. In this question, a hockey puck is situated in the S.Hemisphere that it is not an exception to the Coriolis force. 2) Why is the surface wind always directed at some angle across the sea-level isobars toward lower pressure? Why is the surface wind directed across the sea-level isobars at a greater angle in Madison than over the middle of Lake Michigan? Because of friction, the surface wind always directed at some angle the sea-level isobars toward lower pressure.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
