We define centrifugal force as the outward force which a body experiences in circular motion.

But i have few confusions in this topic:

  1. Why does the centrifugal force arise?

  2. If it acts on the same object equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to the centripetal force why it doesn't balance it?
