Centrifugal Force Calculator
A force that causes an object moving in a circular path to move out and away from the center of its path. In other words, the apparent force that is felt by an object moving in a curved path that acts outwardly away from the center of rotation.
Centrifugal force refers to the force that tends to pull a particle or an object toward the axis around which it rotates. The centrifugal force is a ficticious force that only exists in the rotating reference frame.
E.g. – the force acting on a rotating DVD
Formula used for Centrifugal force calculation is:
Centrifugal Force(N)[F] = Mass(Kg)[m] * Velocity2(m/s2)[v] / Radius(m)[r]
A 1500kg car whose speed is 10 m/s rounds a turn who radius is 30m. What is the Centerifugal force on the car ?
f = m * v2 / r
f = 1500(kg) * 102(m/s2) / 30
f = 1500 * 100 / 30
f = 5000 N
The standard unit of measurement for Centrifugal Force is Newton i.e. (Kgm/s2)
