On the Origin of Rotation of a Celestial Body
Abstract
The differential equations of the selfrotation of a celestial body have been evaluated. From an integral of these equations a formula for angular velocity of the celestial body was obtained. This formula after being applied to the rotation of the Sun and of the Earth gives, respectively, the following angular velocity ranges: 0.588×10^{6}<ω<18, 187×10^{6} and 0.7533×10^{5}<ω<12,4266×10^{5}. These are up to three times narrower than those previously obtained by Savić and Kašanin [1].
