A 70.50 kg man rides a Ferris wheel with a radius of 10.3 m at a velocity of 5.00 m/s. What is the centripetal force that she experiences expressed with the correct number of significant figures?

• Physics -

The net force that produces centripetal motion is
M V^2/R. Compute it and round the answer to three significant figures.
