Solve the following :


At what rate should the earth rotate so that the apparent $g$ at the equator becomes zero? What will be the length of the day in this situation?


Apparent acceleration due to gravity at equator becomes 0 .

$G^{\prime}=g-\omega^{2} R=0$

$g=\omega^{2} R$


$=\sqrt{\frac{9.8}{6400 \times 10^{\mathrm{s}}}}$

Time period $=\mathrm{T}=\frac{2 \pi}{\omega}=\frac{2 \times 3.14}{1.2 \times 10^{\mathrm{s}}}=1.41 \mathrm{hrs}$
