Question #437

What is the formula of the centripetal force based on linear speed?

Answer

The centripetal force can be calculated with the following formula:





The previous formula can be generalized in vector form:





Where:

  •  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.
