### What is Meant by the Centripetal Force?

In Physics, the centripetal force is defined as a force which is needed for an object to move in a circular or a curved path, and also which is directed towards the centre of curvature or the axis of rotation in which the body is moving. It is one of the important properties of a moving object. In general, centripetal means towards the centre. The centripetal force formula is given by

Centripetal force, F = mv2 /r

Where

m = mass of the object

v = velocity of the object

r  = radius
