# Centrifugal and Centripetal Forces (from angular speed)

This calculator applies to a rotating object. It computes the Centrifugal and Centripetal Forces from angular speed, mass and radius.

**Enter 'x' in the field to be calculated.**

Do not confuse these two forces

the centrifugal and centripetal forces have the same intensity which is calculated by this calculator. However, they are different. On the one hand, they are opposite (as vectors). On the other hand, their natures are different. For example, centrifugal force is apparent (fictitious) while centripetal force is real.

This tool is a calculator of Centrifugal Force from angular speed. It applies to a rotating object. If you know the tangential speed instead of the angular speed then, you may use this calculator : Centrifugal and Centripetal Forces from tangential speed.

`F = m*R*omega^2`

F : Centrifugal / Centripetal Force in Newton (N)

R : radius or distance of the object from the center of rotation in meter (m)
m : object mass in kilogram (kg)

`omega` : angular speed in radian per second (rad/s)
