Centripetal Force Objectives Explain what is meant by centripetal force. Select and apply the equation for centripetal force: F = ma = mv2/r. Outcomes • Outcomes You MUST ALL Be able to define Centripetal force as the force that acts towards the centre of a circular path; apply Newton’s 2nd Law to equations for centripetal acceleration to get equation for centripetal force and apply the equations for centripetal force to solve problems correctly for different situations. • MOST of you SHOULD Be able to rearrange the equation for centripetal force.
