centrifugal force vs centripetal force

centrifugal force centripetal force

Definitions

• 1) physics : 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.
• 2) physics : 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) physics : 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.
• 4) physics : 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.
• 5) physics : 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.
• 6) physics : 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.
• 7) 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).
• 8) The apparent force, equal and opposite to the centripetal force, drawing a rotating body away from the center of rotation, caused by the inertia of the body.
• 9) the outward force on a body moving in a curved path around another body

Definitions

• 1) physics The force on a rotating or orbiting body in the direction of the centre of rotation.
• 2) physics The force on a rotating or orbiting body in the direction of the centre of rotation.
• 3) The component of force acting on a body in curvilinear motion that is directed toward the center of curvature or axis of rotation. Centripetal force is necessary for an object to move with circular motion.
• 4) the inward force on a body moving in a curved path around another body
