Yes, the centrifugal force is turned to account in many ways. The speed of many engines is controlled by a centrifugal governor, with whirling balls which fly further apart as the speed increases and move levers that reduce the supply of steam or gas. Cream is separated from milk, water from wet clothes, molasses from sugar, by centrifugal apparatus. Pipes are cast centrifugally by pouring molten metal into rapidly revolving molds. Centrifugal force keeps a circular saw stiff, is applied to the pumping of water, and is depended on to release the safety-belt in a shell fuse as the shell leaves the gun.
