# Centripetal Force Calculator

To calculate centripetal force, put the values of the mass, velocity, and radius in the centripetal force calculator.

## Centripetal Force Calculator

Centripetal force calculator is an online tool that calculates the centripetal force by using mass, velocity, and radius.

## What is centripetal force?

The definition of centripetal force:

“It is a **force**, directed towards the center that keeps a body in a circular path.”

The unit of centripetal force is **Newton **or **kgms ^{-2}**.

## Centripetal force formula

The equation for centripetal force is,

**F _{c} =mv^{2}/r**

In this equation:

represents the centripetal force,*F*is mass,*m*is velocity, and*V*is a radius.*r*

## How to calculate centripetal force?

*Example:*

A kid is rotating a ball of a mass of ** 10 kg** attached to a string of

**in a circular motion with a velocity of**

*2 meters***4ms**. Calculate the centripetal force acting on the ball.

^{-1}**Solution**:

**Step 1:** Identify the values.

V = **4ms ^{-1}**

r = **2 m**

m = **10 kg**

**Step 2:** Put the values in the formula of centripetal force:

`F`

_{c }= mv^{2}/r

F_{c }= (10)(4^{2})/2

F_{c }= 160/2

`F`

_{c} = 80 N
