Difference between centripetal and centrifugal forces? Give real life examples,

Step 1

Centripetal force is defined as the component of force acting on an object in curvilinear motion which is directed toward the axis of rotation or center of curvature. It is a real force and keeps the object from flying out.

Example:

1. Satellite orbiting a planet.

2. While driving, when we take our car around a curve, a centripetal force is applied to keep the car in its circular path.

Step 2

The Centrifugal Force is the apparent force, which is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to the centripetal force, drawing a rotating object away from the center of rotation, caused by the i...
