Fictitous Force and Free falling Elevator

A non inertial Frame of Refrence is the frame of refrence which is having acceleration a. Example Free Falling elevator
Newtons law are valid in inertial frame of refrence only. We cannot apply them as it is in non inertial frame of refrence as it left out the acceleration of the object because of the frame of refrence.
Let me provide simple example to illustrate this.

Newton’s Third Law of motion (action-reaction and examples)

This article is about in-depth explanation of newton’s third law of motion. Here in this article I presume that you have a introduction of Newtons first law of motion and Newton’s second law of motion. Now Newtons first law and second law of motion deals with the effect of forces when they acts on a body. First law is about the change in the velocity of the body on the application of unbalanced forces and second law is gives the exact amount of the force needed to produce a given acceleration.

Circular Motion Physics : Detailed explanation

Circular motion is a very important concept in physics. Here in this page I would like to go through the concept of circular motion. You encounter circular motion in your day to day life. Many rides in amusement parks undergoes circular motion. Curves on highway are part of a circle and cars making a tun undergoes circular motion. Merry-go-Rounds in playgrounds offer further examples of uniform circular motion. Now let us learn more about circular motion.

What does work means in physics

Work has different meaning in physics then it has in our everyday life and usage. This article is all about work and what we mean , when use term ‘work’ while studying physics. When we talk about our day to day life a person working on desktop typing is doing very less work in comparison to a person lifting and carrying heavy goods.

Relative velocity

Before discussing relative velocity we must know that all the motion is relative. Everything moves-even things that appear to be at rest. They move relative to the Sun and stars. When we discuss the motion of something, we describe the motion relative to something else. When we say a racing car reaches a speed of 200 kilometers per hour, we mean relative to the track. Unless stated otherwise, when we discuss the speeds of things in our environment, we mean relative to the surface of Earth. Motion is relative.
