# An object with a mass of 6 kg is revolving around a point at a distance of 2 m. If the object is making revolutions at a frequency of 6 Hz, what is the centripetal force acting on the object?

$17.05 k N$

#### Explanation:

Centripetal force, directed towards the centre of the circle, is given by

$F = \frac{m {v}^{2}}{r}$

$= \frac{6 \times {\left(6 \times 2 \pi 2\right)}^{2}}{2}$

$= 17.05 k N$
