Answer:

The centripetal force is #=28503.4N#

Explanation:

The centripetal force is

#F=mromega^2#

The mass of the object is

#m=4kg#

The radius of the circle is

#r=2m#

The frequency of rotation is

#f=9Hz#

The angular velocity is

#omega=2pif=2*pi*9=19pirads^-1#

Therefore,

the centripetal force is

#F=4*2*(19pi)^2=28503.4N#
