## Centripetal Force Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Fc = (Massflight path*(v)^2)/r
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Centripetal Force - (Measured in Newton) - A centripetal force is a force that makes a body follow a curved path. Its direction is always orthogonal to the motion of the body and towards the fixed point of the instantaneous center of curvature of the path.
Mass - (Measured in Kilogram) - Mass is the quantity of matter in a body regardless of its volume or of any forces acting on it.
Velocity - (Measured in Meter per Second) - Velocity is a vector quantity (it has both magnitude and direction) and is the rate of change of the position of an object with respect to time.
Radius - (Measured in Meter) - Radius is a radial line from the focus to any point of a curve.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Mass: 35.45 Kilogram --> 35.45 Kilogram No Conversion Required
Velocity: 60 Meter per Second --> 60 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
Radius: 5 Meter --> 5 Meter No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Fc = (Massflight path*(v)^2)/r --> (35.45*(60)^2)/5
Evaluating ... ...
Fc = 25524
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
25524 Newton --> No Conversion Required
25524 Newton <-- Centripetal Force

## What is Centripetal Force?

A centripetal force (from Latin centrum, "center" and petere, "to seek") is a force that makes a body follow a curved path. Its direction is always orthogonal to the motion of the body and towards the fixed point of the instantaneous center of curvature of the path. Isaac Newton described it as "a force by which bodies are drawn or impelled, or in any way tend, towards a point as to a centre". In Newtonian mechanics, gravity provides the centripetal force causing astronomical orbits.

## How to Calculate Centripetal Force?

Centripetal Force calculator uses Centripetal Force = (Mass*(Velocity)^2)/Radius to calculate the Centripetal Force, A centripetal force is a force that makes a body follow a curved path. Its direction is always orthogonal to the motion of the body and towards the fixed point of the instantaneous center of curvature of the path. Centripetal Force is denoted by Fc symbol.

How to calculate Centripetal Force using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Centripetal Force, enter Mass (Massflight path), Velocity (v) & Radius (r) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Centripetal Force calculation can be explained with given input values -> 25524 = (35.45*(60)^2)/5.

### FAQ

What is Centripetal Force?
A centripetal force is a force that makes a body follow a curved path. Its direction is always orthogonal to the motion of the body and towards the fixed point of the instantaneous center of curvature of the path and is represented as Fc = (Massflight path*(v)^2)/r or Centripetal Force = (Mass*(Velocity)^2)/Radius. Mass is the quantity of matter in a body regardless of its volume or of any forces acting on it, Velocity is a vector quantity (it has both magnitude and direction) and is the rate of change of the position of an object with respect to time & Radius is a radial line from the focus to any point of a curve.
