(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A truck with a mass of 20000kg goes around a circular path with a speed of 50km/hr. If the radius is 105m. Calculate the centripetal force acting on the car.

2. Relevant equations

This is why I can't get the answer to this question. I don't know which equation to use. I'm thinking its Fc=4pi^2mrf^2, but I don't know the frequency and speed isn't in the equation so it's probably not the right equation.

3. The attempt at a solution

Fc= 4pi^2(20000)(105)f^2
