(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Medium of Physics

A car weighing 1200 kg is on a circular track with a radius of 500 m, moving at a constant speed of 40 m/s. Considering the centripetal force as the main force acting on this curvilinear motion, calculate the value of the centripetal force acting on the car. Which of the following alternatives presents the closest value to this force?
38400 N
19200 N
24000 N
30000 N
45000 N
