# What is the Reference frame in Physics? What is the real time application for it?

Hello sir i have a doubt in physics What is reference frame called explain me clearly where it is used in real time application

Dear student, when we compare two frames with each other, then one is the refrence frame and other is the subject frame. We use these frame systems to know the actually velocity or motion of an object with respect to other refrence frame , both of which constitutes a system. Real tlme applications are those such as launching of satellites, rockets etc into space. For more, you can look forward to Hc Verma or Resnick Halliday. I recommend you to get your doubts clear with your college teacher or tuition teacher because these topics can not be understood like i am telling you since it needs a close interaction and various other concepts are also to be well cleaed before that.

reference frame is the set of co-ordinate axis taken form which we conduct our observations and conclusions. for example a person sitting in train feels to be at rest for himself, that is his frame of reference. but if you look from outside the train, i.e. from your frame of refernce, u'll the person is moving with a remarkable velocity. it's real time use can be seen in calculating relative velocities in space and vaccum oriented calculations.

reference frame in physics means a fixed thing or object with respect to which another body is said to be moving. The real time application here is the time taken by a body to move or to do some work with respect to the Reference frame in a given period of time.

Reference frame is a concept in newtonian classic physics. As you have studied inertial and non inertial frame of reference while solving mechanics numericals.. similarly imagine the motion of a person observed by another person who is in another lift .

even if you are confused while solving numericals.. just forget it and solve questions using simple strategy.. every question can be solved without this concept

Every object in this universe is either moving or stationary with respect to something i.e. earth is moving with respect to sun ,this shows that we have considered sun as an stationary object and earth moving with some speed with respect to sun now, here sun is frame of reference.

since, we are on earth and hence most of the times we consider earth as frame of reference so if any object is moving than we consider its speed with respect to earth and not with respect to sun or any other object.

A frame of reference in physics, may refer to a coordinate system or set of axes within which to measure the position, orientation, and other properties of objects in it, or it may refer to an observational reference frame tied to the state of motion of an observer. It may also refer to both an observational reference frame and an attached coordinate system, as a unit.
Reference frame may refer to Frame of reference in physics.

All the best

A set of coordinate axes in terms of which position or movement may be specified or with reference to which physical laws may be mathematically stated. Ex: As we all know that Earth is rotating about its axis . But with this concept we say that Earth is stable with respect to us but rotating with respect to sun. Also called reference frame. Reference frame are of two types:
Inertial frame of reference
Non-inertial frame of reference.
