We will not have day and nights. either day or night depending on position it stopped. one day will be like one year full as the time taken for sun to move around.It would get very hot on the sunny side, and very cold in the shadowed side.The rotational velocity of the Earth decreases as you head away from the equator, towards the poles. So as you got further away from the equator, your speed would decrease. If you were standing right on the north or south pole, youd barely even feel it.

The Earth would become a perfect sphere
The Earth would no longer be tilted
