User: What is centripetal force?

Weegy: You can feel the centripetal force every time you are in a car, and that car goes around a corner. [ This force has to be taken into account by the driver; otherwise, there can be accidents. Many washing machines have an option for drying the laundry (partially), through an application of the centripetal force. Read more: ]

Centripetal force is a force that makes a body follow a curved path: its direction is always orthogonal to the velocity of the body, toward the fixed point of the instantaneous center of curvature of the path.
