Another term for lateral G-forces.

The force produced when an body rotates around the centre of its orbit. A skier will notice this when turning, in the form of an outward force away from the centre of the radius of the turn.

The apparent force acting on a body moving in a circular path and tending to force it0 outwards.

The apparent outward force felt by a body rotating about an axis.

An imaginary force that makes a spinning object feel as though it wants to fly outwards

moving or acting in a direction away from the center or axis like when you spoin a bucket of water on a rope around you, the water goes away, or toward the bottom of the bucket Back to Toys in Space

The action that causes something to move away from its center of rotation.

The force generated and utilized by the lathe to shape wood. The force pushes the momentum of circular movement to the outside of the circle.

The force that tends to move an object away from the center of rotation.

Also known as G-Force. Describes the acceleration of gravity, and in Formula One, the force that presses a car outwards in a corner. The unit of measurement is the g (1g = 9.81 metres per second per second).

Horizontal rotational outward force.

The imaginary pulling force the helicopter applies to the blades while they're spinning. more.

Centrifugal force describes the fact that when any object is subject to high speed while rotating, it will "fly out" or away from its original position. Squeezing the trigger starts this force that pushes the clutch teeth out from their resting spot when the saw is not being used.

The fictitious force which occurs when moving along a curved path. To an observer moving in such a way, there appears to be a sideways force, which tries to throw them off that path, onto a path which is tangent to their motion. In a car moving along a curved mountain highway, the apparent desire of the car and its contents to go off the side of the mountain, instead of following the road.

Force that tends to move the particles of a rotating object away from the center of rotation.

the outward force on a body moving in a curved path around another body

a disunifying force (such as civil war) and a centripetal force is a unifying force (such as language)

a force which acts on particles moving in a circular path away from the center of the circle

A non existent force which is actually the absence of a centripetal force.

The natural tendency of objects, when forced to move in a curved path, to move away from the center of rotation.

The natural tendency of a language to branch into a set of regional dialects (cf. Centripetal Force). The various distinctive dialects of American English (Southern, Northern, Northeastern) all display centrifugal force.

A fictitious force outward from the center of a circular trajectory, due to an object's centripetal acceleration.

The force that appears to move outward on a body moving in a circle.

A force acting on a turning body that pushes the body outward.

A force which must be included in the calculation of equilibria between forces in a rotating frame of reference (e.g. rotating carrousel, rotating space station, rotating Earth). In the rotating frame, the forces on a body of mass m are in equilibrium (as evidenced by the body staying at the same place) only if all forces acting on it, plus a "centrifugal force" mv2/R directed away from the center of rotation, add up to zero. See Coriolis force.

The apparent force in a rotating system that deflects masses radially outward from the axis of rotation. This force increases towards the equator and decreases towards the poles.

The force generated from the unbalanced condition of eccentric shaft rotation at a given speed.

The apparent force, equal and opposite to the centripetal force, drawing a rotating body away from the center of rotation, caused by the inertia of the body

A force which acts upon an object due to its rotation.

A force associated with a rotating body. In the case of a pump, the rotating impeller pushes fluid on the back of the impeller blade, imparting circular and radial motion. A body that moves in a circular path will has a centrifugal force associated with it.

(noun) The force that tends to impel (urge motion) a thing or parts of a thing outward from a center of rotation. (Think about how if you swing a bucket of water around really fast, it doesn't spill…)

The force that causes a substance to move away from its center of rotation.

Centrifugal force is a force that acts upon a body spinning on an axis. This force is directed away from the body. Centrifugal force is equal to, but opposite the centripeta force.

A force acting in a direction along andoutward on the radius of turn for a mass in motion.

Not an actual force but, rather, the result of an object's inertia trying to maintain motion along a straight line when the object is forced to travel along a curve.

The apparent force in a rotating system, deflecting masses radially outward from the axis of rotation, with magnitude per unit mass Ï‰2, where Ï‰ is the angular speed of rotation and is the radius of curvature of the path. This magnitude may also be written as , in terms of the linear speed . This force (per unit mass) is equal and opposite to the centripetal acceleration. The centrifugal force on the earth and atmosphere due to rotation about the earth's axis is incorporated with the field of gravitation to form the field of gravity.

Force that causes a mass to move away from the center of rotation.

Centrifugal force (from Latin centrum "center" and fugere "to flee") is a term which may refer to two different forces which are related to rotation. Both of them are oriented away from the axis of rotation, but the object on which they are exerted differs.
