Answer:

The centripetal force is #=2842.4N#

Explanation:

The centripetal force is

#F=mromega^2#

The mass of the object is

#m=12kg#

The radius of the circle is

#r=6m#

The frequency of rotation is

#f=1Hz#

The angular velocity is

#omega=2pif=2*pi*1=2pirads^-1#

Therefore,

the centripetal force is

#F=12*6*(2pi)^2=2842.4N#
