Centripetal Force Formula

Centripetal Force :   f = mv2r

Radius :   r = mv2f

Velocity :   v = frm

m = Mass,
r = Circular Radius,
v = Velocity.

Centripetal force calculator finds the centripetal force of a moving object. Centripetal Force refers to a force that acts on a body that moves in a circular path and which is directed toward the center around which the body is moving.

Centripetal force is necessary for an object to move with a circular motion. The apparent force that is equal and opposite of the centripetal force and drawing a rotating body away from the center of rotation that is caused by the inertia of the body is said to be Centripetal Force.

Force acting on a moving body at an angle to the direction of motion that tends to make the body follow a circular or curved path is termed as a centripetal force of an object. The advanced online Centripetal Force Calculator is used to calculate and find the force of an object by the given mass, radius and velocity.

Calculate the Centripetal force for the given details.
Mass (m) = 10 kg
Radius (r) = 5 m
Velocity (v) = 15 m/s

Apply formula:
f = mv2r
f = 10*1525

f = 450 N

Centripetal Force (f) = 450 N
