👋 Hello! I'm Alphonsio the robot. Ask me a question, I'll try to answer.
How to calculate the centripetal force from the linear velocity?
The centripetal force can be calculated with the following formula:
The previous formula can be generalized in vector form:
is the centripetal force expressed in Newton ( )
is the body mass expressed in kilograms ( )
is the linear velocity of the body expressed in meters per second ( )
is the radius of the circular path expressed in meters ( )
is a radius vector attached to the center of the circular path, in the direction of the body.
