Description:

This applet allows users to test their understanding of the basic geostrophic wind equation. Instructions are given on how to adjust the friction force (drag), pressure gradient force, and latitude in order to test the equation. There are also other instructions and questions to learn about the balance of Coriolis, frictional, and pressure gradient forces and the wind.
