Centrifugal force – does it exist? September 3, 2006

Posted by Al in : interesting,people,science , trackback

I’m wholeheartedly behind this guy and his point of view. I’m sure anyone even vaguely interested in the sciences would have had this sort of discussion at some point, where a pedant you are talking to (or even worse not talking to but just butts in anyway) corrects you on something you know is actually correct. And the famous “I think you mean Centripetal force” comment is very annoying. So my backing goes to all the rest of the real world who know that centrifugal force really does exist.

There’s a link in one of the comments to a quite funny comic as well – xkcd.com – which has a good take on this issue:
