Have you ever wondered what the Coriolis effect is? Let’s be honest, you probably haven’t. And neither had I before today. But actually it’s a fascinating subject.
This video shows what the Coriolis effect is by using a simple example of two people throwing a ball to each other while traveling on a roundabout. It’s about as easy a way of explaining it as there is.
If you try and read what the Coriolis effect is then you’ll probably be lost within seconds. It’s very hard to imagine what the hell is happening if it’s not shown to you visually rather than explained.
How many people will now rush out to see the Coriolis effect in action? I can only imagine there will be a lot of kids sitting in playgrounds tomorrow wondering what the hell those stupid adults are doing.
