Calculate the centripetal force on a 2000-kg automobile roudning a curve of 175 m radius at a speed of 50 km/h.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ok

so this

Fc=mv^2/r

i did 2000(50)(1000)(3600) / 175

but this was incorrect. the answer is 2.2x10^3 N

the 1000x3600 was to convert the km/h to m/s and i think that's correct so what did i do wrong here.
