Claude Allègre - Controversies - Gravity
... (Each falling ball experiences acceleration due to two main competing forces gravity and air resistance ... The acceleration due to gravity will be the same for both balls, regardless of mass, but the acceleration due to air resistance will be different because the balls have different sizes and surface ... As a result, the balls' total accelerations will be different, as will their final speeds ...
Coriolis Effect - Applied To Earth - Rotating Sphere
... A local coordinate system is set up with the x axis horizontally due east, the y axis horizontally due north and the z axis vertically upwards ... The rotation vector, velocity of movement and Coriolis acceleration expressed in this local coordinate system (listing components in the order East (e), North (n) and ... be seen immediately that (for positive φ and ω) a movement due east results in an acceleration due south ...

Famous quotes containing the word due:

    The greatest horrors in the history of mankind are not due to the ambition of the Napoleons or the vengeance of the Agamemnons, but to the doctrinaire philosophers. The theories of the sentimentalist Rousseau inspired the integrity of the passionless Robespierre.
