How does water not spin off the earth?

I find it interesting as will forum readers that you've failed to provide a physics explanation of how the water with a low viscosity as not run down to the equator !

Have YOU?

Have YOU?

Trust me I am a scientist !

It is not on me too challenge myself in a thread !

I suspect science will struggle to find a dissuasive answer

Well continue then.

Why rely on science? Why not study it YOURSELF?

Spence. You will never learn anything pretending you know everything.

If you really want to grow up to be a scientist, ask questions. Accept the answers.
That's the way to learn.

I did ask a question and none of you know why the water does not spin off the earth or all towards the centrifuge force .

I actually know the answer as I have the absolute theory of everything so answers are easy to find !

It was answered in post 3.
But because it used logic and science, you didn't recognize it as an answer.

You should prob'ly learn how to use the quote feature, so people know who you're responding to.

The problem may be that post 3 is actually one made by the troll.

Er. Post 4. by JamesR.

Post #s are in bottom corner of posts, not top corner.

Except, of course, for the people who answered you. You must have missed them in your hurry to impress us all with your "knowledge."

To remind you, you asked "How can there possibly be water above and below the equator when there is no mechanics to hold the water in those locations on a spinning sphere?" And then claimed no one answered you. So you are either lying or trolling. Which is it?

From post #4 -

"There are three forces acting on each bit of water on the ocean's surface: the force of gravity, the centrifugal force (if you want to think of it like that) due to the Earth's rotation, and upwards normal force from the water below. These add up to give no net force (in the rotating frame), so water doesn't flow towards the equator due to the Earth's rotation.

To be a little more accurate, if the Earth was a rotating sphere, then the centrifugal force would cause an imbalance, so that water would tend to flow towards the equator, changing the shape of the water surface until it was an appropriate oblate spheroid, with the precise shape being determined by the rate of rotation. And guess what? That's exactly the shape the Earth has."

Now you know.

I already gave Spencer666 the explanation he needed.

To assert that no explanation was provided, while ignoring all the responses, is to troll.

Spencer is therefore officially warned for trolling (again).

Spencer is just good old TC123 in a new suit.

But .....

Your answer doesn't agree with the physics and viscosity of water !

But what? Do you not understand something about those videos?

I already told you that the viscosity of water is irrelevant.

If you think it is relevant, and you have an explanation as to why you are right and I am wrong, you need to post that, not just make baseless assertions.

I did explain earlier on in the thread , the viscosity of water does not allow it to stick to things like a glug substance .
