When you round a corner in your car, you seem to be pushed to the outside of the curve. This is refered to as the CENTRIFUGAL force. This force is not due to something actually pushing you in that direction, but by your body's inertia trying to keep you moving in a straight line. The car is actually curving around in front of you and intercepting you in your straight line path. The car door pushes you towards the center of the curve and makes you change direction and move in a circle with the car. Click the button below and watch a merry-go-round demonstration.
