Given,

Mass (m) = 3000kgRadius (r) = 180mSpeed (v) = 60km/hr = 16.67m/secCentripetal force (Fc) = ?We know that:-Centripetal force (Fc) = mv²/r = 3000kg x (16.67m/sec)²/180m= 4631.48N ≈ 4631.5N∴ Centripetal force (Fc) = 4631.5N.

Fc = mV²/R = (3000)[(60)(1000/3600)]²/180 = 3000(277.777)/180 = 4629.6 ≈ 4700 nt ANS
