centrifugal force

I just saw a reference to centrifugal force in a wikipedia article. The man who wrote that should be shot. Its like people saying the world is flat. Centrifugal force does not exist, and even though you cannot see past the horizon, the world is round.

Sorry, just had to rant.

Yeah, I remember learning that in physics class. It's centripetal acceleration, right? It acts tangential to the path of the object or something? You should get on Wikipedia and change it!

(This thread will probably get moved. . .)

Oh it will be deleted in about 3 minutes probably and there si no centrifugal anything. Its tangential force that most people mislabel, though sometimes its the normal force.

Ring World solved this problem, unless you were on the outer rim.

Maybe, you should go edit and correct it.

That's a good idea. Wikepedia is only as reliable and as informative as the person wring the info.

And, it gets you a barnstar...................

I would go do it, but would probably get it wrong too.....All I know is, when you spin something fast enough, it flings it away................

Wiki OK, just look some more

Wikipedia has the physics right. It's under "centripetal force" (-petal not -fugal) and "reactive centrifugal force" CentriFUGAL force is a false concept but they explain that OK.

post a link to the article...

simply spin a object in 0 gravity does induce a "gravity force" at the perimeter...

problem is nobody knows what gravity is!!!

The way I understand it, most atoms and molecules are attracted to each other.

You can have two planets of the same size but if planet A consists of material that is denser than planet B, planet A will have more gravitational force. More molecules are pulling whatever is on the surface.

That explains why on the shore of the a sea on Earth, we get high tide when the moon is in the sky. The moon's gravitational pull cancels out some of the Earth's pull on everything, but unlike land, the water's fluidity allows it to move around under the influence of the moon.
