Galilean Frame Transforms
For classical (Galileo-Newtonian) mechanics, the transformation law from one inertial or accelerating (including rotation) frame (reference frame traveling at constant velocity - including zero) to another is the Galilean transform.
Unprimed quantities refer to position, velocity and acceleration in one frame F; primed quantities refer to position, velocity and acceleration in another frame F' moving at translational velocity V or angular velocity Ω relative to F. Conversely F moves at velocity (—V or —Ω) relative to F'. The situation is similar for relative accelerations.
|Motion of entities||Inertial frames||Accelerating frames|
V = Constant relative velocity between two inertial frames F and F'.
Ω = Constant relative angular velocity between two frames F and F'.
|Relative angular position
|Transformation of any vector T to a rotating frame

Famous quotes containing the words galilean, frame and/or transforms:
“The Galilean is not a favourite of mine. So far from owing him any thanks for his favour, I cannot avoid confessing that I owe a secret grudge to his carpentership.”
—Percy Bysshe Shelley (17921822)
“With its frame of shaking curls all in disarray,
make-up smudged by beads of sweat,
eyes languid at the end of lovemaking,
may the face of the slim girl
whos riding on top of you
protect you long.
Whats the use
of Vi.s».n»u, iva, Skanda,
and all those other gods?”
—Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
“It is old age, rather than death, that is to be contrasted with life. Old age is lifes parody, whereas death transforms life into a destiny: in a way it preserves it by giving it the absolute dimension. ... Death does away with time.”
—Simone De Beauvoir (19081986)
