among the explanations for the Coriolis force I've seen is a mention of the ice skater's rotational acceleration by pulling arms in radially.
I've always understood the spinning ice skater as conservation of angular momentum. However, I do see that the Coriolis force cross product formulation of -2m omega x v vector (cross product of rotational velocity and the velocity of pulling the arm in ) yields a vector that is tangential to the arm's spiral sweep and should cause rotational acceleration.
Can someone confirm that the rotating ice skater system is a satisfactory example of this. I've already read through an analysis of forces in the inertial frame that is posted at Why does a ballerina speed up when she pulls in her arms?
which seems pretty thorough but doesn't mention Coriolis so I'm not sure that my perspective is correct.
