Re: [Phys-L] conserved momentum thru gas...


Checked the archives and not seeing a close analog to this question that
been bugging me for a little while; hope you can help.

Question assumes the following:

-A solid/liquid earth
-Gaseous atmosphere, where we know gases are definitionally unbonded
-Earth and atmosphere are 1 frame of reference (rotational velocity is the
same angular velocity for both; 2 separate FoR would lead me to another
question as that's needed for, say, coriolis effect wrt atmosphere)

So, my question please:

How is conservation of momentum 'transferring' through scores of miles of

What axioms are off with my question, if any?
