Centripetal Force and Centrifugal is the action-reaction force pair associated with circular motion.
Since the direction of Motion is constantly changing for a object that moves in a circular path - the object has an acceleration - named centripetal acceleration
centrifugal force is a apparent force that draws a rotating body away from the center.
