I need to know if solidworks simulation can tell me how much force will my part exsert if its spun at 100 RPM. I cannot post picture or models of the part.
Yes it can, you need to define the axis of rotation using an axis feature. It will give you various output from centrifugal acceleration, and calculate the displacement and stresses. Does that answer your question?
Yes, Doug is right. Once you have the axis in the model, right click on the loads folder and define centrifugal load.
Once you run the study with a centrifugal load you can right click on the results folder and "list result force"
I hope this helps.
All the best,

Can I do this with Simulation Xpress or do I need another plug in because it is not gving me the option to add Centrifugal Load.
Sim Xpress doesn't have this loading option available; you'll need access to SW Simulation.
you may not be able to post your model but you can probably mock something up and post it
this would also be a good idea to test your setup because it is probably easier to hand calc a test model than yoru model
but as doug mentioned ther is a body force called rotation that you could virtually "spin" the part
and if you fix the inner section, you could output the reaction force that it creates
but i don't know if that is exactly what you're looking for
