Answer:

The centripetal force is #=473.7N#

Explanation:

The centripetal force is

#F=mromega^2#

The mass of the object is #m=3kg#

The radius of the circle is #r=4m#

The frequency is #f=1Hz#

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

The centripetal force is

#F=3*4*(2pi)^2=473.7N#
