Is this a homework question. If so then it needs to go in the homework section of the forum and use the template including the part where you show your own effort.

Ask yourself... What is the acceleration of the particles? What does that tell you about the net force acting on them?

I just want to know if yes or no.

Yes. Here is the equation for centrifugal force friend Fc=MV^2/R. As long as there is matter with a velocity traveling perpendicular to a force then there is a centrifugal force, if the centrifuges are spinning then the particle in them should feel a center seaking force.
