Centrifugal acceleration forces have been used very effectively to separate solid particles from fluids or to separate different density fluids. In the medical industry, urine and blood components can be separated using centrifugal acceleration forces. For example, a normal blood solution, which has a density of approximately 1060 kg m−3, can be separated into its components, because of their density gradients, by accelerating it centrifugally in a test tube. The red blood cells, which have a density of approximately 1100 kg m−3, end up at the bottom of the test tube, the white blood cells, which...
