A 85.3 kg ice skater is moving at 4.38 m/s when she grabs the loose end of a rope, the op- posite end of which is tied to a pole. She then moves in a circle of radius 0.564 m around the pole. Find the force exerted by the rope on her arms. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 . Answer in units of kN
