    The acceleration experienced by a particle in a centrifuge is the centripetal acceleration. (Any object travelling in a circle is accelerating, since its direction - and therefore its velocity - is always changing).

    The magnitude of the centripetal acceleration depends on the speed of the particle (v) and its distance from the axis of ...
