Physics - Inertial frame of reference
posted by Shaila on .
Identify the defining characteristic of inertial and non-inertial frames of reference. Give an example of each type of frame of reference.
Defining Characteristic? Acceleration of the frame of reference itself. Inertial frames are in constant velocity, non-inertial are changing velocity.
Each type? Going in an auto down a highway at constant velocity for inertial, for non-inertial, sitting on a merry-go-round that is spinning.
