About forces of inertia

Although the forces of inertia were recognized by researchers more than 300 years ago, arguments about their nature and significance in physical theories are still going on. If we make a sample of about 100 textbooks on the theoretical Mechanics, the ratio of opinions as to whether the inertia forces are real or not, is shown in Fig.


As we can see, the number of scientists considering inertia forces as unreal is the majority. Such a situation in science can be considered as a linguistic-semantic nonsense, since forces, if observed in experiments, can not be called “unreal”.
