Pseudo force or Fictitious force

A fictitious force is an apparent force that acts on all masses in a non-inertial frame of reference, e.g., a rotating reference frame. The force F does not arise from any physical interaction, but rather from the acceleration a of the non-inertial reference frame itself. Due to Newton's second law F = ma, fictitious forces are always proportional to the mass m being acted upon.
