. Write two differences between centripetal force and centrifugal force
Explanation and Final Answer
Centripetal force: A centripetal force is a force that makes a body follow a curved path. Its direction is always orthogonal to the motion of the body and towards the fixed point of the instantaneous center of curvature of the path.
Centrifugal force: The centrifugal force is an inertial force that appears to act on all objects when viewed in a rotating frame of reference.
Two basic differences between centripetal force and centrifugal force. are
Centripetal force Centrifugal force
Centripetal force is directed towards the centre. Centrifugal force is directed away from the centre.
Centripetal force is real force. Centrifugal force is pseudo force.
