Radial force in a circular motion

  1. Jul 8, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Given-
    Mass of particle=m
    Radius of the circular path=r
    Magnitude of linear momentum= p
    Find the radial force acting on the particle.
    2. Relevant equations
    p=mv
    acentripetal=v2/r
    3. The attempt at a solution
    Fradial=macentripetal
    =mv2/r
    =mv2×m/r×m
    =p2/rm
