pseudo force

Expert Answer:

Pseudo force is an apparent force that acts on all masses in a non-inertial frame of reference, such as a rotating reference frame. The force F does not arise from any physical interaction but rather from the acceleration a of the non-inertial reference frame itself. Due to Newton's second law in the form F = m a, fictitious forces always are proportional to the mass m acted upon.
