The Compadre Portal website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
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.
