Calculate the centripetal force on a 2000-kg automobile roudning a curve of 175 m radius at a speed of 50 km/h.
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.
