The Coriolis effect is a force that is found in a rotating object.

However, it depends on the observer. If you are sitting on a spinning disk and throw something in a straight line, the object will look like it is bending in the direction of the spin. However, that is just because you are moving while looking at the object move in a straight line. From a person sitting outside the spinning disk, it just looks like an object moving straight.
