Thread: Reference frames View Single Post
 P: 355 Just a little question. I'm a little curious. In the classical sense, a reference frame in freefall would, of course, be said to accelerate. However, no forces are felt within a freefalling reference frame. Am I correct, then, in assuming a freefalling reference frame to be an inertial reference frame? Am I also correct in stating that a reference frame on the surface of Earth is an accelerating reference frame, since a force of gravity is felt toward the ground? (Even though in the classical sense, this reference frame is "at rest.") Don't limit this thread to an answer to my question. I would like a continuous discussion. Please? LOL. Good day everybody.
