## Centrifugal Force Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the centrifugal force acting on an object.

F = m * v^2 / r

- Where F is the centrifugal force (Newtons)
- m is the mass (kg)
- v is the velocity
- r is the radius

In this equation the velocity is the tangential velocity, however the angular velocity can be used as well. Instead use the angular velocity and multiply it by the radius to calculate the tangential velocity. A centrifugal force always acts perpendicular to the motion of an object. This force causes an acceleration, also known as an angular acceleration.

## Centrifugal Force Definition

A centrifugal force is defined as the force acting directly perpendicular to an object in rotational movement.
