Corolius Force

Asked by  | 18th May, 2008, 11:48: PM

Expert Answer:

The Coriolis force is a fictitious force exerted on a body when it moves in a rotating reference frame. It is called a fictitious force because it is a by-product of measuring coordinates in a rotating coordinate system as opposed to an actual "push or pull."

The Coriolis effect is an apparent deflection of moving objects when they are viewed from a rotating frame of reference. The effect is named after Gaspard-Gustave Coriolis.
