The Coriolis Effect pushes objects clockwise in the northern hemisphere and counterclockwise in the southern hemisphere. And yet hurricanes spin in exactly the opposite direction. Why?
Yesterday we saw how the movement of the earth affects certain objects. When seen from above, the objects are seen to move in a straight line. From the general human point of view – on that's stuck on a rotating planet – the objects appear to drift to the right or left as the world literally turns out from under them. In the northern hemisphere objects appear, from the thrower's point of view, to curve to the right as they are thrown. In the southern hemisphere they appear to curve to the left.
