On the carousel, every part is accelerating towards the center. Therefore, to do physics in this frame, we must introduce a fictitious force F=−mac as before. ac is the acceleration of the carousel at any point. Because this acceleration points in towards the center of the carousel, the fictitious force points the opposite direction - out towards the edge. This fictitious force is called the centrifugal force.

Yes, a carousel is an example of centrifugal force. It is because it moves in a circular motion due to this an unbalanced force is caused. And when this force is directed toward the center is called centripetal force. In case of a carousel this force is directed toward the center.
