# A car with a mass of 1200 kilograms is moving around a circular curve at a uniform velocity of 20 meters per second The centripetal force on the car is 6000 newtons What is the radius of the curve?

80 meters. Since the only force on the car is centripetal force then:

Fc = mac

ac = v2/r

Fc = (mv2)/r

Solve for r

r = (mv2)/Fc

r = (1200)(20)2/(6000)

r = 80m

### How does speed affect centripetal force?

Force (newtons) = mass (kg) * acceleration ((m/s)/s) but &gt; acceleration in a circle = velocity 2 / radius So &gt; (centripetal) force = mass * (velocity 2 / radius)

only Newtons

### HOW TO CONVERT NEWTONS TO KILOGRAMS?

100 newtons = 10.2 kilograms

### What is the centripetal force on a car with a mass of 2000 kg is moving around a circular curve that has a radius of 80 meters at a uniform velocity of 25 meters per second?

Fc = mV^2/r (2000 kg)(25 m/s)^2/(80 m) = 15625 Newtons

### What is the relationship between the mass and the velocity of a whirling object?

One is that the centripetal force (f) created by the rotating mass (m) at a radius (r) can be calculated if the velocity (v) is known. . f (newtons)= m * (v2 / r)
