```				   Is work energy theorem valid in non inertial frames?Explain
```

Answers : (2)

```										Yes,work energy theorem is valid in non-inertial frames also.Only we've to take care of the pseudo forces & work done by them(fictitious work though).For example as in dynamics problems Newton's laws are applied after taking appropriate pseudo forces in non-inertial frames so do we apply work energy theorem & count work done by these pseudo forces & their effect on energy.
While applying above theorem in centre of mass frame(non-inertial or accelerated) will not  necessisate even this.

```										yes, we can apply work energy theorm in non inertial frame provided we take into account the work done by the pseudo force also.
Take for simplicity a non inertial frame which has only transational acceleration 'α' .In this frame 2nd law will take the form
m*dv/dt = F - mα ,,,...now allpying the work energy theorm, we gat
0.5*m*(V2f - V2i ) = int(F.dr) - m *int(α.dr )

Thus in case of a non inertial force kinetic energy not only changes due to work done by material forces but also due to pseudo forces.....
