The picture at the top shows an inert frame of reference, where the black object moves in a straight line. In the picture at the bottom the observer(red dot) sees the object follow a curved path, because of the Coriolis and Centrifugal effects

The Coriolis effect is a force that is found in a rotating object. Gaspard Gustave de Coriolis first described the Coriolis effect in 1835 using mathematics. The Coriolis effect can best be seen in hurricanes. In the northern hemisphere, or part of the earth, they spin clockwise, in the southern hemisphere they spin the other way. This happens because the earth spins on its tilt. view more...
