Give examples of curvilinear motion.

The particles move from one point to another in a curved path. In the case of curvilinear motion, two types of force come into the picture, i.e., the centrifugal force and centripetal force. Centripetal force is the force acting towards the centre of the circular path. Whereas, the centrifugal force acts in a direction pointing away from the centre of the circle.
