Any frame which is accelarating with respect to an inertial frame of reference is called non-inertial frame! for better understanding, consider a bus accelarating with respect to road. If you are in the bus(no-inertial) then you see things happening from non-inertial frame and if you are standing on the road(inertial) then, you see things from inertial frame of reference....


I hope it's clear now!

approve my answer plz...

Newton's FIRST law of motion is taken as the standard for the definition of inertial frame. Any frame in which Newton's first law is violated is considered as a non-inertial frame.
