How much inward radial force is needed to keep a proton going in a 27 km circular path at 7 Tev or a Lorentz factor of 7500? What is the relativistic formula for it? Is it just mv^2/r with m being relativistic mass?

Supposedly the proton will slow down since it radiates as it is accelerating circularly, so a tangential force behind it is also needed to keep it at 7 Tev. What is this force and the formula for it?
