No. It's called 'centripetal force'.

the force that keeps the object moving in a circle is the centripetal force which always is pointed towards the centre

The force that keeps objects moving in a circle is known as the centripetal force, which acts towards the center. The velocity of the object moving in a circle will be tangential to the circle.

No, centrifugal force is the force that causes objects in rotation to move away form the center of rotation. The force that keeps objects moving in circular motion is called "centripetal force".

centrifugal force, not to be confused with centripetal force

centripetal or centrifugal force...... most likely the first

The force toward the centre of the circle is called the centripetal force. centrpetal acceleration.

The force that keeps an object moving in a circle or an arc is called a centripetal force. Gravity is an example of centripetal force that keeps a satellite in a circular orbit around a planet. Another example is when you ride on a merry-go-round - the rotating play structure imparts a centripetal force upon you, forcing you to also travel in a circle.

Centripetal

Centripetal force.

centripetal force is the force that keeps an object moving in a circle.

centripetal force

Yes you do. You need a force that always attracts the object toward the center of the circle. It's called a "centripetal force".

The centripetal force. Refer to the related link in the Related Links section below.

Is the direction of centripetal force of an object moving in a circle pointing to the center of the circular path? kk

The Centripetal force keeps a object moving in a circle and its force and acceleration are directed toward the center of the circle

f=ma centripetal force= mvsquared/radius so centripetal acceleration=vsquared/radius

No. The force keeping a ball on a string moving in a circle is centripetal force, i.e. force pulling the ball to the center of the circle.

If an object follows a circular path, it must have a centripetal force on it to keep it moving in a circle. Centripetal means "toward the center of the circle". The force causes Centripetal acceleration toward the center witch is along the radius of the circular path. Tangential acceleration occurs at a Tangent to the circular path and is always perpendicular to the centripetal acceleration. Always perpendicular to the radius of the circle.

centripetal force Save

The net force is called centripetal force and it acts in a direction that is radially inward, always pointing to the center of the circle

In a way, you can by creating a centrifuge. If you have an object moving in circular motion, there will be centripetal force directed towards the center of your circle (Centripetal force yields centripetal acceleration). Gravity's acceleration on earth is ~9.81 and if you rotate a circle correctly, the acceleration can be matched.
