As earth is revolving and completes a round (herself) within 24 hrs apprx. Looking at her max perimeter we are traveling approx 30KM/sec. Can we use this energy for trasportation? Please suggest your ideas Suresh Jambhulkar

Not really. It is the same as travelling in a train. You are moving relative to the earth at 60 mph but at 0 mph relative to the train. The only time I can think of when use is made of the earth's rotation is when firing a rocket into space. The closer you are to the equator the less power you need to get into orbit.
