Centrifugal force????

Hi people,
Can someone explain to me what is centrifugal force? Please tell me the equations related to it. I have tried by best to calculate it, but I have drawn a blank.

Centripetal and Centrifugal forces are action-reaction forces, In ground frame , only centripetal force exists , and in the frame of ball at the end of rope rotating in a plane, you will feel the centrifugal force.Now Centripetal and centrifugal are opposite in direction and they donot cancel each other simply because they act on different bodies in two different frames.
