Answer:

Centrifugation is a process that involves the use of the centrifugal force for the separation of mixtures, used in industry and in laboratory settings. More-dense components of the mixture migrate away from the axis of the centrifuge, while less-dense components of the mixture migrate towards the axis.

A simple example of a centrifuge is a household washing machine which separates liquids (water) from solids (fabric/clothing) during the spin cycle.
