This centripetal force calculator will help you accurately determine the force acting on an object moving in a circular path.

## How to Use the Centripetal Force Calculator

To use this calculator:

- Enter the mass (in kilograms) of the object moving in a circle.
- Enter the velocity (in meters per second) of the object.
- Enter the radius (in meters) of the circle in which the object is moving.
- Click the “Calculate” button to see the result.

## How It Calculates Results

The calculator uses the centripetal force formula:

F = (m * v^2) / r

*where:*

**F**is the centripetal force in newtons (N)**m**is the mass in kilograms (kg)**v**is the velocity in meters per second (m/s)**r**is the radius of the circle in meters (m)

## Limitations

This calculator assumes:

- The motion is in a perfect circle.
- There is no friction or other forces acting on the object other than centripetal force.
- All input values are non-negative numbers.
- Mass and radius are not zero, as this would imply that either there is no object or no circular motion, resulting in no centripetal force.
