PhyFl18SS1.6.22 The point I was trying to make with this discussion was that the moon is moving at 2300mph, but appears to us to be moving hardly at all. The reason for this is the very long radius. Since omega = v/r. Since r is soooo big, it wipes out the huge v. the omega is what we perceive as we stand below an object rotating above our head. A jet may be going at 600mph, but because its radius (from us) is, say, 50,000 ft, it doesn’t have a very big omega so it doesn’t seem like it is going that fast to us. There are probably those out there who would call its speed of 600mph “fake news” because they themselves do not understand circular motion kinematics.
