The way in which the rotation of the earth bends the path of winds, sea currents, and objects that fly through different latitudes.[1] For instance, when a toilet is flushed in the Northern Hemisphere, the water rotates in a clockwise direction. But if a toilet is flushed in the Southern Hemisphere, the water rotates in a counter-clockwise direction.
