Tracking the Coriolis Force uses the Tracker video analysis tool to model the motion of a ball rolling with constant velocity on a rotating merry-go-round. Video includes the motion of the ball as viewed from the rotating reference frame of the merry-go-round. Using the Coriolis force equation, students build a model of the motion.
