## In a Spin

I have been contemplating the Coriolis effect. In the above diagram the blue axes are an inertial reference frame with the blue arrows representing the unit vectors. The red arrows show an instant from a rotating reference frame.

The following shows the derivation of the Coriolis and centrifugal “fictitious” forces terms. Considere.g. ( $\frac{d^2\vec{R}}{dt^2}=0$)
