Coriolis Force–Derivation


In the previous article we discussed about some basics of Coriolis force which is an imaginary force experienced by an object moving relative to a rotating frame of reference. In the present article we have derived  the formula for coriolis force and coriolis acceleration.

Rotating Frame of Reference

In rotating frame of reference which is considered as a special case of non-inertial frame of reference rotating relative to an inertial frame of reference. In this case the frame of reference is accelerating with respect to an inertial frame just a boy is rotating a stone tied to a string.

Rotating frame of reference is basically defined using three fictitious forces namely,

Sea surface temperatures play a major role in global weather which influence two extreme phases of a naturally occurring climate cycle. i.e El Niño/Southern Oscillation and La Nina. Both terms refer to large-scale changes in sea-surface temperature across the eastern tropical Pacific.
