Abstract: The Coriolis acceleration is the product of linear and rotational velocities. Acceleration analysis is important because inertial forces are proportional to their rectilinear, angular, and Coriolis accelerations. The magnitudes of Coriolis acceleration vary according to the conditions of motions of an object. This paper presents kinematic analyses of a preliminary design of a Coriolis kit. The Coriolis kit consists of a rotating rod and a slidable collar. A motor is used to rotate the rod and accelerometer is attached to the slider for recording the accelerations. The Coriolis effect is visualized through the mark left by the slider during motion. Common analytical expressions of the Coriolis acceleration are derived and calculated using measured values. Results show that the Coriolis kit is capable to visualize and sketch the travelling path of the object in motion.
Keywords: Coriolis acceleration, force, kinematics and dynamics of mechanism, rotating frame.
