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
