Is the radial centrifugal force being experienced by a section of a flywheel rim the same as the total radial force for the entire rim?

Hi, Iโ€™m having a disagreement with someone and wondered if you could confirm this.

Say you have a rotating hoop, such as a flywheel rim. This rim has mass 100kg and circumference 100cm. At its rotational speed the sum of all radial forces is 200N.

My contention is that each cm of rim is contributing/experiencing 2N to/of the overall radial force.

His contention in the the above example would be that every point in this rim would be experiencing 200N radial force, irrespective of how small that point is. He thinks that because the tangential (hoop stress) force is the same at any point around the circumference, then radial force must also be the same at every point (ie 1cm of that rim would be experiencing 200N of radial force).

All of this is ignoring vector quantities, only looking at the radial (apparent) force acting away from the axis of rotation (within the non inertial reference frame).

Thanks!

If the earth stopped spinning, gravity would feel stronger because we would no longer feel the centrifugal force from earth's rotation.

Do centrifugal forces play a part in the balance of orbits

People say that an orbit is a balance between the forward acceleration of the orbiter and the gravity of the orbitee. But what about centrifugal force. Wouldn't it be a balance of forward acceleration gravity and the centrifugal force

How much centrifugal force is needed to overcome gravity?

I'm driving down the highway past the windmills when the thought occurred to me...If I attached myself to the tip of a windmill blade that is 20m log through a rope that is 10m long, how fast would I have to be travelling so that the slack of the rope would be fully taken and I wouldn't have to worry about being tossed and jerked around? How would this work on a horizontal plane?

Earth is said to be an oblate spheroid due to the rotation pushing the equator out with centrifugal force. Does that mean if the earth stopped rotating it would return to a sphere or has it solidified in it's oblate spheroid shape?

What are the speeds the changes would take place? Would there be Earthquakes, floods, volcanic eruptions, etc? Would humans get smashed in to the ground due to gravity overpowering the us since we are no longer pushed away from the earth due to centrifugal force?

Question About Torus ring and Centrifugal Force

Ok internet, I have a question that has been on the back of my mind. Is it possible to have an open section of a torus ring and still live inside with around 1 atm of pressure using centrifugal force alone. In other words can the centrifugal force induce air pressure? If there is a smart person that is able to do the math it would be very interesting to see if this is even possible.

Do you weigh less at the equator because of centrifugal force?

I am always confused be centrifugal and centripetal force. I am just going to state my thinking and help me point out the problem. At the equator your body is traveling fast in a circle and the inertia of your body makes you continue to move out-word, this is the centrifugal force. At the poles you are moving not at all or much slower in a circle so your inertia has less effect. With less out-word force the normal force, or your wieght, would have to compensate so you would weigh more. At the equator the centrifugal force lessons your weight ( not mass ) because it helps counteract gravity.
