CENTRIFUGALFORCE

Centrifugal force

Centrifugal force is the apparent force that draws a rotating body away from the center of rotation. It is caused by the inertia of the body as the body's path is continually redirected. In Newtonian mechanics, the term centrifugal force is used to refer to one of two distinct concepts: an inertial force observed in a non-inertial reference frame, and a reaction force corresponding to a centripetal force.

centrifugal force

Noun

1. in everyday understanding, centrifugal force is the effect that tends to move an object away from the center of a circle it is rotating about (a consequence of inertia).
2. : In a rotating reference frame, the apparent force that seems to push all bodies away from the centre of rotation of the frame and is a consequence of the body's mass and the frame's angular speed. It works in conjunction with the Coriolis force to give correct motion.
3. : In circular motion, the 'reactive' centrifugal force is a real force applied by the accelerating body that is equal and opposite to the centripetal force that is acting on the accelerating body.
4. : In polar coordinates, the apparent radial force that acts away from the center and is a consequence of the body's angular speed around the origin.
