Expression of the centrifugal force is :

Force (Newton) = m x ω² x R


  • a is the normal acceleration as a=v²/R
  • m is the mass of the object studied ;
  • ω is the speed of rotation such that  ωR=v  ;
  • R is the distance from the axis of rotation to the center of gravity of the object ;

The centrifuges are used to modify sedimentation rate particles of a heterogeneous environment to separate them: see Sedimentation
