Circular motion - Examples

Few examples of circular motion are as under:

Moon orbiting the earth centripetal force supplied by the gravitational force of the earth on the moon.
A car turning a corner

by the sideways friction force of the road on the tyres.

Being whiled in a horizontal circle by the tension force in the string.

The centripetal force is always towards the centre of the circle and perpendicular to the direction in which the object is travelling at that instant.

Consider the example of stone at the end of string.
