# Is there a real force that throws water from clothes during the spin cycle of a washing machine? Explain how the water is removed.

In washing machine water doesn’t experience any force but cloth does that is centrifugal force which work on cloths.

See the step by step solution

## Step 1: Definition of water

Water is a colorless, transparent, odorless liquid that makes up the oceans, lakes, rivers, and rain, as well as the fluids that keep living beings alive.

## Step 1: Determining force

Centrifugal Force is a force (inertial by nature) that acts on the object which is observed in a rotating frame of reference.

Example: motion of stone tied on a string, motion of the earth is generally on them centrifugal force works.

## Step 2: Explaining removal of water

In washing, machine water doesn’t experience any force but cloth does that is a centrifugal force which works on cloths.

Cloth move round in spin or circle but water remains straight. Through-hole to drum and this gets clothes to wash.
