A 2.4 x 103 N force is necessary to keep a car and driver moving at a speed of 100 km/h through the middle of a highway curve that has a radius of 350 m. What is the mass of the car and driver?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Im really confused on this question, I was told the formula should be something like

FC=MV^2 / R

but how can I find the mass.

Help!
