inertia formula for con rod

I am trying to calculate all the forces (in bf) that the connecting rod adds to the engine which influences vibration.
I am dividing the rod in between the two ends into four sections and calculating for the middle point of each as if that point had all that sections weight.
I am calculating for every 15 degrees of crank rotation.

Hereís the formulas I have but Iím not sure about the in-line force formula:
centrifugal force in lbf = (kg x (meters/sec velocity)^2 / arc radius in meters) x .225
in-line force in lbf = (kg x (meters/sec beginning velocity^2) / 2) x .74

I am smudging a bit by ignoring the curvature of movement for calculating the in-line force but I donít care if itís 10% off.
I think ďinertia forceĒ is the same as what Iím calling in-line force because to stop a moving object you have to exert a force equal to its inertia. Correct me if Iím wrong.
