Centrifugal Force Calculator

If you want to determine the force operating on an object rotating around its axis, you can use this centrifugal force calculator.

In physics, centrifugal force is defined as the force that appears from the inertia of a body that arises from any rotating object. This force moves in a circular direction, but it is always pointed away from the center about which it's rotating. For instance, a pebble is hocked around a string, when it starts rotating, and centrifugal force precludes it from moving around the axis of rotation. The SI unit used for centrifugal force is Newton.


Formula of Centrifugal Force Calculator

To evaluate PITI, you can use our calculator, or you can use the formula listed below:

F = mv2/r


F = force

m = mass of an object

v = velocity

r = radius


To know more about it, you can use our Centrifugal Force Defintion.


To learn how to calculate the centrifugal force in physics, check out the example listed below:

Suppose an object rotates around its axis with the speed of 5 m/s, whereas the mass of an object 10kg, and the radius of rotation is 2m. Find out the centrifugal force acting on an object.

Given data

Mass of an object= m = 10 kg
Velocity = v = 5m/s
Radius = r = 2m

To Find

Centrifugal force = ?


To find the centrifugal force, you can use the formula listed below:

F = mv2/r

Putting values in the formula:

F = (10kg).(5m/s)2/(2m)
F = 125kg⋅m/s2 = 125N

How to use the Centrifugal Force Calculator?

The steps to use the centrifugal force calculator are as follows:

Step 1: Enter the value of mass in the first required input.

Step 2: Enter the value of velocity in the second required input.

Step 3: Enter the value of the radius in the third required input.

Step 4: The calculator will automatically display an answer on the screen.
