- Homework Statement
Suppose there is a train of mass ##m## which moves with constant velocity ##v##. It moves on a horizontal railway which is (two options)
A) in the North Pole
B) in the Equator from South to North
What horizontal force would exert the railway on the train, and what horizontal force would exert the wheels on the railway?
- Homework Equations
- Coriolis and centrifugal force
I think that there could be friction, but I try to think on forces related to the motion along the Earth, which rotates. Like when you're on a car that turns to the left and you feel pushed to the right. Do the wheels do the same to railway? Would there be Coriolis force? Because that's just centrifugal force
