Start by looking up centripetal force and if you still get stuck then come back but show what you have tried.If you need to come back will you please clarify your question?

Oh ok thanks! I forgot about centripetal force, I figured it out.


Sorry I'm new to these forums, so it's all about attempting before asking.
