centripetal force is that by which bodies are drawn or impelled, or any way tend, towards a point as to a center, while centrifugal force is a virtual force. it seems to be acted opposite the direction of centripetal force and vanishes as soon as centripetal force vanishes.
centripetal force acts towards the center, while centrifugual force seems to appear away from the center.
