This worksheet and quiz will gauge your comprehension of centripetal force. You'll need to know topics such as the definition of centripetal force and why centrifugal force is felt even though it isn't real.

Use these tools to:

- Understand the force that keeps a ball moving around on a string
- Determine the forces that keeps a satellite moving in orbit
- Calculate frictional force that moves a car

The worksheet and quiz will address the following:

**Critical thinking**- apply relevant concepts to examine information about satellites in orbit in a different light**Problem solving**- use acquired knowledge to solve centripetal force practice problems**Interpreting information**- verify that you can read information regarding centrifugal force and interpret it correctly

If you're looking to find out more about centripetal force, you've come to the right place. Use this lesson named Centripetal Force: Definition, Examples & Problems to determine the following:

- Definition of centrifugal force
- Applications of centripetal force
- Calculations of equations for centripetal force
