    centripetal force, is that force, which you apply, when you are going by bicycle, and you have to bend your trajectory

    Put another way, it is a force that makes a body follow a curved path. Its direction is always orthogonal to the velocity of the body and towards the fixed point of the instantaneous center of curvature of the path. |dw:1433617383728:dw| The magnitude of the centripetal force on an object of mass \(m\) moving at tangential speed \(v\) along a path with radius of curvature \(r\) is: $$ F = \frac{m v^2}{r} $$

    centripital force is a reaction force which gets applied by itself to prevent slipping of the vehicle, ALso it is not a force applied by us but an opposing force to slipping and to make possible the turn. if it is not present then we would not be able to take the turn
