Can anyone explain to me what "Gravitoinertial Force" is?
Sensory systems often provide ambiguous information. For example, otolith organs measure gravito-inertial force (GIF), the sum of gravitational force and inertial force due to linear acceleration.
A famous example for an inertial force is the centrifugalc force, an observer riding a merry-go-round needs to introduce that force to explain why he and all other riders are pulled away from the axis of rotation.
Can anyone explain to me what "Gravitoinertial Force" is? I am about to read a paper who's title is "Gravitoinertial Force Magnitude and Direction Influence" (for head-centric auditory localization) and I'd like to be clear at the outset what it is that I am looking at the internet isn't giving me much help in terms of a simplified definition of gravito-inertia nor any force that may come from it.Thanks for helping out a beginner!CheersAlintaMod edit: Please phrase post titles as questions.
Thanks for these replies guys! Sorry for being painstaking about definitions!
