The first observer watches some object accelerate under applied forces. Call the instantaneousvelocity of the object

v

. The second observer has constant velocity

v

relative to the first,and measures the object to have velocity

=

.The second observer measures an acceleration of

=

=

This is the same as that measured by the first observer. In this nonrelativistic case, theymeasure the same forces as well. Thus, the second observer also confirms that

ma

.

39.4

The laboratory observer notes Newton's second law to hold:

F

1

=

ma

1

(where the subscript 1 implies the measurement was made in the laboratory frame of reference). The observer in the accelerating frame measures the acceleration of the mass as

a

2

=

a

1

–

′

a

(where the subscript 2 implies the measurement was made in the accelerating frame of reference, and the primed acceleration term is the acceleration of the accelerated frame withrespect to the laboratory frame of reference). If Newton's second law held for the acceleratingframe, that observer would then find valid the relation

F

2

=

ma

2

or

F

1

=

ma

2

(since

F

1

=

F

2

and the mass is unchanged in each). But, instead, the accelerating frameobserver will find that

F

=

ma
