A ball on the end of a string travels in a horizontal circle at a constant speed. The circle has a circumference of 3 m, the ball has a speed of 2 m/s, and the centripetal force is 4 N. How much work is done on the ball each time it goes around?
A) zero
B) 6 J
C) 8 J
D) 12 J

I think the answer is A Because the vertical forces cancel and do no work.
