1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 15 kg child stands on the edge of a small merry-go-round of radius 2.0 m. If the merry-go-round turns at a steady rate of 11 rpm, calculate the magnitude and direction of the net force on the child. 2. Relevant equations I'm thinking FG = G(m/r2) 3. The attempt at a solution FG = 11(15/2^2) = 41.25 The direction would be clockwise?
