Find F(net), the magnitude of the net force acting on the cyclist at the finish line.

Express the net force in terms of r, t,m , and pi."

First I tried to break it down into components.

F(net) = sqrt (net tangential force^2 + net radial force^2)

net tangential force = (m4pi*r)/t^2

I know that I will need to use Newton's 2nd law to find the tangential force. But I can't figure out how to do this.

As for the net radial force I know that I somehow need to use tangential force but since I'm stuck there that's as far as I got.

Thanks.
