Answer:

The centripetal force is #=19.34kN#

Explanation:

The centripetal force is given by the formula

#F=mv^2/r=mr omega^2#

The mass of the object is #m=2kg#

The radius is #r=5m#

The frequency is #f=7Hz#

The angular velocity is #omega=2pif=2*7*pi=14pirads^-1#

The centripetal force is

#F=2*5*(14pi)^2=19344.4N=19.34kN#
