comment Why doesn't a bike/bicycle fall if going with a high speed?
If you're moving in a car and the car take a sharp left turn, the force that you feel can be explained either a inertia or centrifugal force. Inertia: your body is trying to continue going in a straight line, centrifugal force: the friction between the wheels of the care and ground acts as a centripetal force on the car.

If your standing still, or moving at constant speed in a straight line, the effect is the same there is no centrifugal force (there might be one because technically you're moving around an axis, but in that case it's negligible). Did you actually read the wikipedia article?

I think centrifugal force is correct. The object's inertia "tries" to keep the object moving in a straight line, the same thing that happens when you swing a rock tied to a rope.
