The above calculation assumed the angular velocity of the earth.
Apple falling from a tree falls under gravity. Hence according to Newton's laws of motion, the path of the object will be rectilinear or straight line path. Motion of falling apple depend on tree size. Because every apple, in the starting velocity is same and its zero.
Suppose that at the moment when the apple it has an initial velocity equal to Vo(starting velocity). But when the apple came down to the earth at that it is accelerated by gravitational force(gravity) which is ~10m/s2. Mar 12, Legend has it that Isaac Newton formulated gravitational theory in or after watching an apple fall and asking why the apple fell straight down, rather than sideways or even upward."He showed that the force that makes the apple fall and that holds us on the ground is the same as the force that keeps the moon and planets in their orbits," said Martin Rees, a former president of Estimated Reading Time: 5 mins.
When an apple fall from a tree it's motion is guided by several forces as explained-Consider an apple the forces acting on it are-Gravitational Force(Force due to its own weight mg) acting downwards. Air friction, ceasing the motion of apple acting vertically upwards. If wind might be blowing then force due to wind which deviates the path of apple.
He observed apples falling from a tree and realised that the force produced by a falling apple is equal to its mass times the earth's gravitational pull. He established the analysis and the theory to predict forces and resulting motion.

Sep 10, Ignoring the fact that the base of the tree does not move in a straight line, but rather in a circle, it should be obvious that the apple will fall meters from vertical, and the pear will fall meters from vertical.
Good luck with the measurements.
