CENTRIPETAL FORCE:Centripetal force is a force that makes a body follow a curved path.for example movement of a roller-coaster
CENTRIFUGAL FORCE:Centrifugal force is the force that draws a rotating body away from the center of rotation.for example hang something on a string grab other end of the string and spin the object when you let go of string object goes away due centrifugal force.
yours is also confusing..

A force which acts on a body which is travelling in a circular path is called centripetal force.

centrifugal force                                         centripetal force
direction      Along the radius of the circle,                       Along the radius of the
from the center towards the object               towards the center.

Example    Mud flying off a tire; children                       .Satellite orbiting a                                  pushed out on a roundabout                         planet
