Centripetal Force Calculator

Table of Contents:

**Centripetal Force :**

f = mv^{2}/r

**Radius :**

r = mv^{2}/f

**Velocity :**

v = √fr/m

**Where,**

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.

**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 = mv^{2}/r

f = 10*15^{2}/5

f = 450 N

**Centripetal Force (f) = 450 N**
