(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I did this circular motion experiment where we had to change the mass of weights on the bottom of a fishing wire and we kept the radius the same. The questions in the post lab say to graph "centripetal force vs velocity". I worked out the velocity by using the 2pi*r/t formula but I'm not sure about the centripetal force. Would it be the mass on the bottom of the string providing the centripetal force? Very confused and would appreciate some help

Thanks
