So, this is my first own topic here and therefore I hope I'm not making a complete idiot out of myself but there is a certain highly hypothetical problem that has bothered me for almost a month now. Neither of my friends or relatives could help me out with it.
Ok, so, any doubts left aside, let's just PRETEND:1. You could dig a whole from the northpole to the southpole of the earth without
1.1 having the whole earth brake apart or collapse
1.2 causing damage to the earth's core so the earth would blow up for another reason
1.3 dying when you reach the core (because you're digging through fluid metal at almost 7000° C)
1.4 creating a giant volcano at the northpole because fluid metal will shoot to the surface
1.5 your whole hole collapsing for the outer pressure to it.
1.6 anything else ridiculus I'm to lazy to think of2. You could...
2.1 stabalize it, so it won't go down the tubes
2.2 stuff it's walls with an ultra-thermo-material completely keeping the 7000 ° C out of your giant tube
So let's pretend you did all that. You would have a tube from northpole to southpole, let's say 25 meters (or whatever you like) in diameter. My question is now:What would happen to you, if you would jump in from northpole?
Ok, you'd start to fall. I figured that out myself. But would you fall past earth's core, almost reach the southpole and then start falling again and almost reaching the northpole again so you would end up floating in the middle of the earth? Would you get slower and slower to stop at the center and float right away?
And either way:
What would happen if you made the whole tube a perfect vacuum and jumped in in a capsule so there would be no air preassure to break?
I hope I hitg the right forum for this. If not, please don't kill me.
Would you help me with that problem? I completely don't know what would happen.
Thank you a lot!
P.S: I attached a file to demonstrate what I mean.
P.P.S: I apologize for any mistakes I didn't notice. English isn't my first language so I hope you can forgive me
