Answer:Explanation:Yes, If tangential velocity is your reference frame

If R is the radius of earth

and ω is the angular velocity = (2π / (24(3600)) radians/s

Tangential velocity at the equator is

v = ωR = (2π / (24(3600))(6 370 000 m) = 463 m/s

Tangential velocity at a point half way to the pole (45° latitude)

v = ωRcosΘ = 463cos45 = 328 m/s

Answer:False

Explanation:It is actually the exact opposite.
