Homework Help: Centripetal force relation to angular momentum

  1. Oct 17, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    how could one prove a relation between centripetal force and angular velocity?

    i have tried to find this in a search but nothing came up.

    2. Relevant equations
    Fc= mv^2/r

    3. The attempt at a solution
    i guess this involves some sort of substitution for velocity and angular momentum. the problem is, which equation could/should i use?
