Irodov Problem 1.113

In this problem the mass experiences a centrifugal force (as seen by an observer on the rod) that pushes it outwards given by and hence experiences an acceleration of .
Here v is the velocity of the sleeve along the rod as seen by the observer on the rod.

The Coriolis force is given by,

For understanding the origin of the Coriolis force see the solution for problem 1.112.
