    you can use this: \(\large F = \frac{m \ v^2}{r}\)

    Use F=mv^2/r. When a body moves in a circle, its direction of motion at any instant is along the tangent to the circle at that instant. A centripetal force is a force that makes a body follow a curved path. Its direction is always orthogonal to the motion of the body and towards the fixed point of the instantaneous center of curvature of the path.
