Centripetal Acceleration vs Centripetal Force

First published at 02:19 UTC on May 23rd, 2018.

Is there a difference between centripetal acceleration and centripetal force, and if so, what is it? If we know the mass of an object moving along a curved path, how can we calculate the centripetal acceleration and/or force?
