The centrifugal force does NOT exist


The centrifugal force does not exist because it is an inertial force, something that creates the illusion of force. The real force that has to be taken into account is the centripetal force. The Science Asylum explains what the centrifugal force actually is: a fictitious force, a force that is only there when you look from a certain perspective.

He explains about inertial reference frames (IRF), when moving in a straight path, and about accelerated reference frames (ARF), when moving in a curved path. Looking at the world from these different reference frames you get to experience forces in different ways. Learn more from the video above.
