2 Physics Chapter 13 Section 13.3 & 13.4 Centripetal and Centrifugal Forces

3 Centripetal Force Centripetal Force is a force that allows an object to follow a circular path. It is the name given to the force at right angles to the parth the objects are moving. Center Centripetal Force

4 Washing Machines during the spin cycle, has the tube rotating at high speeds. The inner wall exerts a centripetal force on the wet clothes, forced into a circular path. The holes in the washing machine allows for the water to flow out through the holes (b/c of Newtons First Law) Centripetal and Centrifugal Forces Centrifugal: outward force in circular motion Gravity and electricity act as centripetal force across empty space.

5 Centripetal Force: Can pushes on bugs feet From our point of reference no centrifugal force b/c of absence of force and tendency to go in a straight line (inertia) Like when turning sharply in a car… you want to stay going straight thats why your body moves.
