Motion in Accelerated Frames z A fictitious force results from an accelerated frame of reference z A fictitious force appears to act on an object in the same way as a real force, but you cannot identify a second object for the fictitious force z Remember that real forces are always interactions between two objects

Fictitious Forces in Linear Systems z The inertial observer (a) at rest sees z The noninertial observer (b) sees z These are equivalent if F fictiitous = ma sin cos 0 x y FT m a m g θ == =− = 's i n 'c o s 0 x fictitious y F m a m g =−= =

A) “Centrifugal” Force z From the frame of the passenger (b), a force appears to push her toward the door z From the frame of the Earth, the car applies a leftward force on the passenger z The outward force is often called a centrifugal force z It is a fictitious force due to the centripetal acceleration associated with the car’s change in direction z In actuality, friction supplies the force
