There is no connection between the two forces. Centripetal force is the force which keeps a body moving in a circular path, while the gravitational force causes weight of a body.
There's gr8 difference....
Centripetal force acts along the centre....
it is just a force lyk upward force or dwnward force....& it does not hav its own mag. smthing lyk firction etc. has 2 cause (i.e. it is only specifies the direction...)
Gravitational is a type which has its own magnitude.....
Lyk Tension is an electromagnetic force having sum magnitude.....& It might b a cause of centripetal force on a body.....
Hope u understand...
