the object moves in a circle with radius R because the force points perpendicular to the velocity.

Fc= centripetal force. If the force suddenly disappears it wont travel in a circle in anymore because its traveling with velocity v and the only thing that is keeping it in the a circular motion is Fc. So it will continue going in velocity v in a straight line when the force disappears.
