The earth spins at around 1100mph so that means everything is moving at 1100mph unless its being powered like cars n stuff but forget that. yes imagine if it sudently stopped. just casue the earth stops doesnt mean you or any other stationary object will, your gonna still be going 1100mph. so you'd would go flying along with all the other buildings, trees,cars,lamp posts,houses,rocks, people, animals, debris everything! IMAGIN THAT! 1100mph!

This was brought up in the graphics forum and i said the above about. But i wanted to hear what your thoughts are on it! So let em rip.

Things like that are just too mind boggling for me. So what exactly counts as the earth? Is it hte trees too? Will teh water stay? What about...piles of dirt? What if you've ordered dirt for your house and it's sitting on your driveway? Will the [i]air[/air] stop moving or will it continue to spin? How would birds be affected? Long story short:The world would be fucked over, we would all die(How on earth would anyone live through it?) There would be no coming back. The whole world would be a non inhabitable wasteland. It would be ice on one side and baked dry on the other.

How would the birds be effected?

i think anything touching the ground but not necessarly anchored but just touching the ground sitting there would move. So yeah a pile of dirt in your drive way would probably take off like a bullet.

But the air would have to move at roughly the same speed as the planet, otherwise we'd have a 24/7/365 massive fuck-off hurricane all over the world...

Right?

Everything in the Earths atmosphere is moving at the same speed while stationery, yes.

I would assume that everything not fixed to the surface, including air, would continue moving if the world stopped spinning.

I love these sort of topics happy.gif

You're not going 1100 mph everywhere, only on the equator, where the diameter of the earth is largest. On the north and southpole it would be hardly noticeable.

Besides the earth wouldnt stop suddenly, it would gently slow down as would the objects such as humans. and we wouldn't continue spinning forever we would slowly stop as well. But the long term effects would be awful, like said everywhere would pretty much be inhospitible(sp?)

The way you described it is that asif the world 'started spinning' becuase something hit it and made it spin in the first place. Its not like that, and therefore a object hitting it wont make it stop spinning.

(What would be cool is if the earth span the other way round though. tongue.gif rolleyes.gif wink.gif)

Going at 1100MPH? That would be enough speed to kill anyone due to the huge G-force hitting you. Ouch.

Actually what if we stopped moving completely? The Earth is spinning, goes around the sun, moves around the galaxy, and is whizzing around the universe. We're going waaaaay faster than 1100mph.

What a coincidence. We were discussing this idea of momentum today in Physics.
