Question: The Earth orbits around the Sun and revolves around its own pole-to-pole axis. What are the corresponding angular velocities, frequencies, and linear speeds? ! Answer: Any point on the surface of Earth moves in circular motion around the rotation axis (pole-to-pole) axis, with a rotation period of 1 day. Expressed in seconds, this period is ! The Earth moves around the Sun on an elliptical path, which is very close to circular. The orbital period for the motion of the Earth around the Sun is 1 year. If we express this period in seconds, we obtain: T earth = 1 day !

    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.
