The image above represents the centrifugal force.

To compute for the centrifugal force, three essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **Mass of the body (m)**, **Angular Velocity of the body ( w)** and

**Radius (r).**

The formula for calculating the centrifugal force:

F = mω²r

Where:

F = Centrifugal Force

m = mass of the body

ω = angular velocity

r = radius

Let’s solve an example;

Find the centrifugal force with mass of the body as 12, angular velocity as 32 and a radius of 8.

This implies that;

m = mass of the body = 12

ω = angular velocity = 32

r = radius = 8

F = mω²r

F = 12 x 32² x 8

F = 12 x 1024 x 8

F = 98304

Therefore, the **centrifugal** **force** is **98304** **N**.

**Calculating the Mass of the body (m) when the Centrifugal Force, Angular Velocity and Radius is Given.**

m = ^{F} / _{w2r}

Where;

m = mass of the body

F = Centrifugal Force

ω = angular velocity

r = radius

Let’s solve an example;

Find the mass of a body when centrifugal force is 140 with an angular velocity of 24 and a radius of 10.

This implies that;

F = Centrifugal Force = 140

ω = angular velocity = 24

r = radius = 10

m = ^{F} / _{w2r}

m = ^{140} / _{24210}

m = ^{140} / _{576 x 10}

m = ^{140} / _{5760}

m = 0.024

Therefore, the **mass of the body** is **0.024 kg.**
