CSS: But there is no mention of this in the textbook reason,
I think this is more "school playground" level than graduate level. Most kids understand that a merry go round throws you off because it spins. It seems css has failed to understand this (or he's a troll).
there is more mass between an object at the equator and the center of the Earth
OK, so, back to the point Its all very well saying "go and do the integration" but not everyone can do it and its only one way of "explaining" it. I think the main issue you are having, css, is that Quotethere is more mass between an object at the equator and the center of the Earth. I'm not sure, but, the Earth's rotation causes the bulging round the middle of the Earth. This means that its stretched and there is not more mass as the Earth is less dense. There is exactly the same mass as anywhere else on the Earth's surface but you are further away from the middle so the field is less.
I'm bored to the core myself. I'll leave you all to your laughable tittle-tattle and publish a scientific paper instead. Bye. It's been fun.
