Map and spin frame perspectives of centripetal (red) and geometric (blue) forces on an object released after being spun around on a massless rope, along with the reaction force on the rope's anchor point (magenta) caused by the centripetal force on the object. Before the object is released, the blue geometric force is purely centrifugal (pointing radially outward), while after release the geometric force is a sum of centrifugal and Coriolis components. Note that after release in the spin frame that the centrifugal component (light blue) is always radial, while the Coriolis component (green) is always perpendicular to spin frame velocity.
