What on Earth is spin?

Why does the Earth spin? Does a basketball falling from a spinning merry-go-round fall in a curve, as it appears to, or in a straight line? How can speed be manipulated while spinning? In short, why is the spinning motion so special?

What on Earth is spin? from TED-Ed educator Brian Jones, with animation by Flaming Medusa Studios.

There’s a surprising amount of spinning videos in the archives.
