Frames of Reference and Centrifugal Forces

The classic movie Frames of Reference has a good discussion of non-inertial reference frames and centrifugal forces. This has come up a bit for us a few times already, and we’ll delve into it deeply in Taylor Chapter 9. The entire film is really amazing and I encourage you to watch it when you have half an hour, but the particular part relevant for centrifugal forces is a gripping five minute segment from 17:00 – 22:00.
