What is the centripetal force acting on this __100kg__ person if he spun around in a __8m__ circle at a speed of __10m/s__?

Direct substitution to the formula F = mv²/R

where F = centripetal force in Newtons (N)

m = mass in kg

v = velocity in m/s

R = radius in meters.

So we have:

F = mv²/R

= 100(10)²/8

=100X100 / 8

= 10000/8

= 1250 N

= 1.25 kN(kilo Newtons) ANSWER..
