Centripetal Force

A mass moving in a circle at constant velocity needs a force directed towards the center of the circle in order to maintain the circular motion and constant velocity. Learn how to calculate this Centripetal Force with this Formula Solver. Continue reading

Centripetal Acceleration

An object in motion with velocity (v) must be accelerated inwards in order to travel in a circle or radius (r). This inward acceleration is called centripetal acceleration; see how to calculate it with this Formula Solver. Continue reading
