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
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.
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.
