The film ‘Frames of Reference’ is a physical science documentary that puts into perspective the distinction between non-inertia and inertia. Professor Donald Ivey and Patterson Hume provide an analysis concerning the movement of objects by employing camera tricks. The movie prefaces with Professor Hume positioned upside yet he accuses Ivey of facing the wrong direction. When a coin is flipped, Ivey seems to be the one facing the wrong direction when in reality the Camera is inverted in a particular angle (Hume & Ivey, 1960). It is imperative to underscore that all motion is relative, and the movement is dependent on the inherent activities manifested at a particular time.

All forms of motion are relative, but it is always perceived that one item is moving while another is fixed. A frame of reference fixed to the Earth is the most common point of observation when determining the movement of other things. The position of any object can be referenced using particular establishments fixed to the Earth. All frames of reference moving at a constant velocity with respect to one another are equivalent. An object moves with a constant velocity unless an unbalanced force is subjected to it. Fictitious force arise in accelerated frames of reference (Hume & Ivey, 1960). The unbalanced force has the capacity to alter the direction of an object either moving at a constant velocity or otherwise.  A rotating frame of reference is not inertia frame. The smaller the acceleration, the lower the fictitious force. Fictitious laws have to be introduced as a consequence of ensuring that the law of inertia does not change.
