# Coriolis Effect

## Main Question or Discussion Point

bar (length L) is turned with angular velocity ω, on a horizontal level. Αt length of the bar, there is a ball (mass m) which rolls (We suppose that there is no friction force). The ball begins from constant utmost the bar with initial velocity u0. When the ball reaches in the L?

Can you help me!?
Thank you!

We can't help you if you don't show your attempts at the solution.
Please use the homework template provided.

First of all, according to the no Inertial Reference Frame there will be 2 Forces (the once is Coriolis and the other once is Centrifugal).
We can write:
xdx^2/dt^2=-2w*v=-2w*v(z*y)=2w*v*x
or d^2x/dt^2=2*w*v
where v is the velocity of the ball.
I think that I have to write v connection x, and then I can solve this differential equation…
Then I will solve the equation x=L to find t.

My problem is how can I connect v and x.

I think that my problem is the direction of these 2 Forces
In fact, I think that I haven’t understand how the ball will move.
