Relating Rotating Frames To Stationary Frames

The following is a derivation of the formulas for accelerations as well as fictitious forces in a rotating frame. It begins with the relation between coordinates of the position of a particle in a rotating frame and the coordinates in an inertial (stationary) frame. Then, by taking time derivatives, formulas are derived that relate the velocity of the particle as seen in the two frames, and the acceleration relative to each frame. Using these accelerations a comparison of Newton's second law as formulated in the frames identifies the fictitious forces.

### Famous quotes containing the words relating, frames and/or stationary:

It is by teaching that we teach ourselves, by relating that we observe, by affirming that we examine, by showing that we look, by writing that we think, by pumping that we draw water into the well.
Henri-Frédéric Amiel (1821–1881)

The bird would cease and be as other birds
But that he knows in singing not to sing.
The question that he frames in all but words
Is what to make of a diminished thing.
Robert Frost (1874–1963)

It is the dissenter, the theorist, the aspirant, who is quitting this ancient domain to embark on seas of adventure, who engages our interest. Omitting then for the present all notice of the stationary class, we shall find that the movement party divides itself into two classes, the actors, and the students.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
