This motion, faithful to the laws of mechanics, would have been accelerated with the diminution of its volume; and a moment would have arrived when the centrifugal force would have overpowered the centripetal, which causes the molecules all to tend toward the center.
Under the centripetal force, the base of the projectile tended toward the moon; but the centrifugal still prevailed; and it was probable that its rectilineal course would be changed to a curve of some sort, the nature of which they could not at present determine.
What I think of on this point is, when self is the fixed point the centripetal force is balanced with the centrifugal.
It is not enough that we should have matter, we must also have a single impulse, one shove to launch the mass and generate the harmony of the centrifugal and centripetal forces.
As the air I breathe is drawn from the great repositories of nature, as the light on my book is yielded by a star a hundred millions of miles distant, as the poise of my body depends on the equilibrium of centrifugal and centripetal forces, so the hours should be instructed by the ages and the ages explained by the hours.
Only countries with a stable equilibrium between its centrifugal and centripetal forces stay afloat in comity of nations.
The tighter they grip, the more centripetal force there is holding the chain together.
The history of Dutch Jewry is not long, but has been shaped by the same reciprocal relations between centripetal and centrifugal forces that have shaped other Jewish communities, say Kaplan and Michman: the tension between maintaining the community and being part of the larger society.
But at the same time from our point of view it should not in any way influence the centripetal trend which exists in our bilateral relations with Tokyo," Peskov said, adding that this was done "in terms of the careful preparations for the forthcoming visit of President Putin to Japan and in terms of continuing contacts to develop our bilateral ties, especially in the economic sphere, and negotiations on the peace deal issue.
At the same time, however, there were centripetal forces at work creating a larger, if sporadic, Panhellenic cultural identity: the Greek language (despite dialectical variations), the pantheon of Greek deities, the Homeric poems as a common cultural possession, and the great religious festivals with the most famous, of course, being Olympia--for which the Greeks would call a sacred truce in order to send representatives to compete in the musical and athletic contests.
In this book, Karolina Prasad attempts to study how institutions, particularly political parties, play a role in changing ethnic identities in consociational and centripetal polities.
Appropriate for KS2 or 3 pupils, the 40 pages cover gravity, centrifugal or centripetal force, potential and kinetic energy, high 'g' effects and simulators.
