Answer Text:
The centrifuge:
-It consists of a small metal container tubes which can be electrically or manually rotated in a circle.
-If we consider two particles of different masses m1and m2 each of them requires a centripetal force to keep it in circular motion, the more massive particle require a greater force and so a greater radius and therefore it moves to the bottom of the tube.
-This method is used to separate solids and liquids faster than using a filter paper.
