Centripetal Force

This is a simulation of the physics concept of centripetal force, in which an object revolves in circles as a result of a force constantly pulling it to the center of the circle. This force may be gravity or anything else. It is governed by this equation:

F = M*V^2/R

In the simulation, you can change the values of all of the four variables and see the effect of that change. The variable which is marked with the green square is the one that will change as a result of changes in other variables. The other stay constant. Click on one of the red squares in order to turn it green. Enjoy!
