Centripetal Force Formula

Centripetal Force :   f = mv2r

Radius :   r = mv2f

Velocity :   v = frm

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

centripetal force example

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.

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

Solution:
Apply formula:
f = mv2r
f = 10*1525

f = 450 N


Centripetal Force (f) = 450 N
