We come across many scientific application in daily but we do not know principle. This is principle of centrifugal force we come across in daily life. This is principle from physics.Centrifuge machine is classic example of centrifugal force. Washing machine is also one example of this force.

Scientific theories and its application in daily life

There are many scientific theories which we are applying in our daily life. But we don't know which principle we are using and what is its theoretic part. We are discussion here such types of one principle from branch of science Physics. And that principle is centrifugal force. We are discussing only practical application of theory.

Centrifugal force

This is force in moving object in circular path. And this force is force pulling object outside from center of circle. This force have many application in day life. We are discussing them in this article. We are not discussing theoretical part but practical part only.

Practical application of centrifugal force

We now discuss one by one application we applying in daily life. But we don't know which principle behind them.

1.Washing Machines

We are using washing machine daily. There are cloths are dried automatically. We use centrifugal force in this case. There wet cloths are moving circular path and force act on water particle in cloths and this force pull water to outer side. This water is removed from cloths and cloths are dried in this machine. Basic principle is centrifugal force acting on water.

2.Buses at corner or circular path

When we are traveling in bus and bus comes to move or at corner. There is circular path of bus. And this time there is force acting on bus and centrifugal force acting on passenger and pull passenger from center to outside due to centrifugal force. And we are moved to outer edge of bus. This force is centrifugal force.

Centrifuge machine and cream separation

This is classic application of centrifugal force. Centrifuge machine have electric motor and this motor connected to rod and this rod is placed to move. And this rod ends are set bottle containing milk. When this machine moves then this milk have pressure and solid part from this milk goes outside and this solid part is cream. In this way cream is separate from milk and used for other product. This is very common in our daily life. And principle is centrifugal force.
