Name the force that is used to dry clothes in a washing machine.

Centrifugal Force acts along the radius outwards and hence can be used to throw the water molecules on the clothes radially outwards during the spin cycle of the washing machine.


The centrifugal force between the clothes and the inside of the drum pushes them around in a circle. This force pushed the water from the clothes straight through the drum holes. The clothes experience the centrifugal force, and the water doesn’t. The clothes go round in a circle and spin, the water goes in a straight line—straight through the holes of the drum. And this gets the clothes washing dry.
