Centripetal Force Tutorial

Centripetal Force Tutorial

Centripetal Force:

A force that tends to pull a particle or body toward the axis around which it rotates. This is called as Centripetal(Centrifugal) Force.

Centripetal Force Formula:
Centripetal Force:
Radius:
Velocity:
where,

f = Centripetal Force, m = Mass, r = Circular Radius, v = Velocity,

Centrifugal Force Example:
Case 1:

What is the centripetal force acting on this 100kg person if he is spun around in a 8 m circle at a speed of 10 m/s? m = 100 kg, r = 8 m, v = 10 m/s

Step 1:
Substitute the values in the below centripetal force formula:

This example will guide you to calculate the Centripetal Force manually.

Case 2:

A van travels a curve of radius 200 m at 14 m/s on a force of 965 N. What is the weight of the van? f = 965 N, r = 200 m, v = 14 m/s

Step 1:
Substitute the values in the below Mass formula:

This example will guide you to calculate the mass manually.

This tutorial will help you dynamically to find the Centrifugal Force problems.
