## Homework Statement

Not a homework problem but:

I am revising rotating frames of reference right now and

I know that: a[itex]_{inertial}[/itex]=([itex]\frac{dv}{dt}[/itex][itex]_{inertial}[/itex])[itex]_{rot}[/itex]+(w x v[itex]_{inertial}[/itex])

But I cannot seem to understand what ([itex]\frac{dv}{dt}[/itex][itex]_{inertial}[/itex])[itex]_{rot}[/itex] means; more so the 'rotational' bit outside the brackets of the true acceleration term.

Thank you for your help, and sorry about the formating; I have no idea how to use latex.

## The Attempt at a Solution

Inertial acceleration viewed from the rotating frame? That makes no sense whatsoever. I honestly can't physically understand this.
