|Centripetal Force||Centrifugal 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 is an outward force apparent in a rotating reference frame; it does not exist when |
measurements are made in an inertial frame of reference. All measurements of position and velocity must be made relative to some frame of reference.
|Centripetal Force is observed from inertial frame of reference.||Centrifugal Force is observed from non- inertial frame of reference.|
