In a skating stunt known as "crack-the-whip," a number of skaters hold hands and form a straight line. They try to skate so that the line rotates about the skater at one end, who acts as the pivot. The skater farthest out has a mass of 73.0 kg and is 7.70 m from the pivot. He is skating at a speed of 5.90 m/s. Determine the magnitude of the centripetal force that acts on him.
