Since centripetal force is the inward force required to keep an object moving with a constant speed in circular path and centrifugal force is the apparent force that pulls an object from its centre or axis of rotation.
So...is a satellite revolving around the earth kept on its orbit by both centripetal and centrifugal force? Or only centripetal force
As I was taught back in school that a satellite requires both centrifugal and centripetal force, but personally, I think it should only be centripetal force, since the satellite still revolves around the earth, so where does centrifugal force come in?. Because the only reason a satellite could be pulled from its axis of rotation is if maybe an asteroid were to hit it or some other reasons.
