Wikipedia is the on-line encyclopaedia that anybody can edit. The content changes on a continual basis. One of the rules is that editors must not insert original research. The contents must reflect what is stated in reliable sources.
In the case of the centrifugal force article however, reliable sources don’t always agree, and over the years, the inability of editors at that article to consider the totality of existing knowledge on the subject has led to never ending discussions and edit wars. An example of the confusion that surrounds this topic can be found at this web link, http://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/37968/centrifugal-force-and-polar-coordinates
