probably a stupid question!! on force.
 
when we spin round and round we feel dizzy,when we move in front we dont,now considering in both cases a force is acted on body,one force has an effect on your brain where as other does,so what is so special in this circular force that makes brain dizzy,where as linear force dosent.
