Fictitious Forces in a rotating reference frame Result from a non inertial (accelerated) reference frame They are NOT real forces however they can have real effects F centrifugal does NOT act on the ball F centripetal = force on the ball by the string = force on the hand by the string F centrifugal 1. Centrifugal Force Reaction force to the centripetal force. We feel this force because we are in a NON inertial reference frame 2. Coriolis Force Coriolis force requires the object to be in motion relative to the rotating frame with a velocity that is not parallel to the rotation axis.

Coriolis force Observer on the disk Outside observer The curved path of the ball is the result of the rotation of the platform A force act on the ball: CORIOLIS FORCE Apparent force (pseudo-force) that originates in a rotating system Straight path

Coriolis force A B v O v A v B path of the ball From Inertial reference frame r B - r A • Tot distance traveled by ball = vt s A = v A t • Because of tangential velocity balls moves also to the side s B = v B t s s = s B - s A = (v B - v A ) t But v A = ω r A v B = ω r B s = ω (r B - r A ) t = ω v t 2 Motion with constant acceleration y=1/2 at 2 a Coriolis = 2 ω v s IMP: Component of velocity perpendicular to axis of rotation
