Coriolis Force

Discussion

Talk, Talk, Talk

  • Gustave Coriolis (1792–1843) France
  • Mémoire sur les équations du mouvement relatif des systèmes de corps. Gaspard-Gustave Coriolis. Journal de l’École polytechnique. Vol. 15 No. 24 (1835) 142–154.

Should this be changed to a discussion of radial vs. tangential acceleration?
