Physics-HELP PLEASE

If I'm driving a car and I make a turn to the right, what will happen to a bag of items that is sitting next to me in the car-in terms of inertia, friction and centripetal force I think they will fall the opposite direction but we just started this unit and I don't what centripetal force is-it that like centrifugal force?
