The "sticks experiment" shows a different outcome for both models as soon as you use sticks on more than 2 different latitudes.Thanks for your response. I shall look into the sticks experiment, although on the FE model the outcome would be the same, as per the Eratosthenes experiment with sticks would too.
As far the Foucault pendulum this requires an electromagnet to keep it in motion. So I'm unclear on what this Foucault pendulum is supposed to prove.
Gyrocompasses I don't fully understand. As for absolute north thats in the same spot for both models.
Try my pizza box experiment on/around September 21st!
The pendulum I have seen was mounted over a solid stone floor, no electromagnets were needed. You may note that neither brass nor lead are magnetic:
The experiment, still visible at the “Musée des Arts et Métiers” (Fig. 1), was then repeated at the Panthéon in March 1851, using a 67-m-long pendulum with a hollow brass sphere, 17 cm in diameter, filled with lead to reach a mass of 28 kg.
A gyrocompass is at its core a spinning object suspended horizontally (e.g. floating on water) but able to rotate freely in the other directions. The axis of rotation of that spinning object will shift and eventually point North. There is no reason for it to do so if the Earth was stationary and unmoving.
