More about Frame of reference
We know that we need a frame of reference is needed to locate the position of any object. For that we choose rectangular co-ordinate
of three mutually perpendicular axis that are $x$, $y$ and $z$ axis. The point of intersection of these three axes is called
and is considered as the Reference Point
The $x$, $y$ and $z$ co-ordinates describe the position of object with respect to the co-ordinate system.
To measure time , we need a clock.
The co-ordinate system along with a clock constitutes a Frame of reference
So , the frame of reference is a co-ordinate
system , with a clock w.r.t. which, an observer can describe the position, displacement etc. of an object.
Frames of reference are of two types:-
Inertial frame of reference:- These are the frame of reference in which Newton's First law of Motion is applicable.
Non-Inertial frame of reference:- These are the frame of reference in which , Newton's first law of motion is not applicable
