. Discuss the concept of Accelerating Reference Frames


Best Answer

While solving problem in this chapter, it is important to note that Newton’s laws are valid only for inertial or non- acceleratingreference frames. If we want to solve a problem from a non inertial frame (accelerating frame) we should introduce an imaginary force called pseudo force in a direction opposite to that of the accelerating frame, along with all the real forces acting on the body. The magnitude of this pseudo force is depends on the mass of body and the magnitude ofacceleration of non- inertial frame. Pseudo force on a body can be defined as
