HelloIt's among a class of forces called inertial forces[/b]. Before Einstein they were referred to as pseudo forces. After Einstein created general relativity they were called inertial forces and looked at as real forces. At least it was looked at byh Einstein that way. Some modern relativists look at it that way, such as D'Inverno.
I am confused by Coriolis force.
Is it real? Does it really act on objects?
I read that it is not a real force however how can it then be a result of earth's movement onto objects and not be a real force?
The earth's movement exerts force on the objects on the planet and it supposedly creates and maintains their kinetic energy in respect to the earth's rotation.
