Hello

i have one different about the
Centripetal force is directed toward the center of rotation of an orbiting body or object following a curved path.
Centrifugal force is the apparent force, equal and opposite to the centripetal force, drawing a rotating body away from the center of rotation, caused by the inertia of the body
