Title: Accelerated Frames of Reference: Intertial Forces
Url: http://www.phy6.org/stargaze/Sframes2.htm
Creator: Stern, David P. (David Peter), 1931-
Publisher: David P. Stern
Description: These web pages, authored and curated by David P. Stern, provide an explanation of forces in accelerating reference frames. Topics include centrifugal force and what is felt in vehicles that are speeding up or slowing down. The page is structured in this fashion: inertial forces, unit vectors, a decelerating bus and a lesson on jetliners taking off. This is part of "From Stargazers to Starships," an extensive web site that introduces physics and astronomy using topics in space exploration and space science.
