Coriolis issue

  1. Sep 8, 2008 #1
    according to the figure attached below , do we have a coriolis acceleration on the slider and why ?

    why cant we say that it is a centripital acceleration ???

    I want to know the difference between coriolis accelration and centrepetal acceleration ,

    cause As I know , coriollis acceleration show's up only if we are studying the object in a rotational frame, why are we concidering here that it is a rotaitonal frame and not an inertial frame ??
