The purpose of this research is to show that Foaucault pendulum as well as other Coriolis effects, which are normally studied in a rotating coordinate system, can also be analyzed in a fixed reference frame. To this end, Foucault pendulum and other Coriolis effects are studied in inertial reference frames. The approach is simple, yet rigorous, and the results are exactly the same as those obtained in non-inertial reference frames but without resorting to some of the assumptions that are needed in rotating coordinate systems.
