Website Detail Page

written by David McIntyre
This site, from Oregon State University, offers animations that illustrate fictitious forces on frictionless objects on the Earth's surface.  The graphic display contrasts the path of the object as seen from space and as seen from Earth's surface. The effects of both the centrifugal and Coriolis forces are shown.
