Foucault Pendulum's Rate of Turn Calculator

Foucault pendulum was observed by the French physicist Leon Foucault. It is a simple equipment developed as an experiment to know the rotation of the Earth. Here you can calculate the Foucault Pendulum's rate of turn or swing of rotating frames from the known values of Earth's spin rate and latitude.
