"Faking Gravity in a Spaceship": Let's start learning how artificial g's really work



Faking Gravity in a Spaceship” (4 minutes) is a typical YouTube video showing how artificial gravity would work for inhabitants of a rotating space station.
  

Asa you climb a ladder you feel “lighter”(until you reach the center, where you feel nothing).  As you run faster you may feel “heavier”.

The video does mention the Coriolis effect.
