Answer:

The centripetal force is #=1895N#

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 of rotation is

#f=2Hz#

The angular velocity is

#omega=2pif=2*pi*2=4pirads^-1#

Therefore,

the centripetal force is

#F=3*4*(4pi)^2=1895N#
