Centripetal force


Today I was amazed by something called centripetal force. As you can see in the video was circling my arm, holding a bucket, and I tipped the bucket at the end to show that there was water in it.

Well, to explain it more, you know the spinning equipment in the playground? Its pretty much the same as that. At the playground when you are in the spinning equipment, even if you try, it’s very hard to push inwards while your on the ride. So, the force pushes outward coming from my shoulder in this case. My shoulder is the centre of the circulation that’s pushing out.

I learnt that bending your elbow, breaks the circulation and stops the force from pushing outwards, so the water falls out. This also happens if you go to slow, the gravity lets the water fall out. I really enjoyed watching and doing this amazing force trick. I was delighted to learn so many new things about centripetal force.

I hope you learnt something new as well!â˜ș
