Related to inertial force: inertia force

inertial force

n.
An apparent force, proportional to a body's mass, that appears to affect the body within a noninertial frame but is absent from the point of view of an inertial frame. Centrifugal forces and Coriolis forces are inertial forces.

inertial force

n
(General Physics) an imaginary force which an accelerated observer postulates so that he can use the equations appropriate to an inertial observer. See also Coriolis force

Bubble velocity is influenced by four basic forces: the hydrostatic lift force (directed upward) Fw, the resisting force Fv and the inertial force Fb, oppositely directed to the motion direction, and the Magnus force FM generating as a result of gas circulation inside the bubble and the liquid flowing around it.
