Question 2:


A toy car moves in a horizontal circular trajectory with a radius of 2 meters at a constant speed of 4 m/s. In order to maintain the circular motion and prevent the car from leaving the track, some force must act on it. Determine the centripetal force acting on the car, considering its mass to be 0.5 kg, and then identify which of the following situations corresponds to the required acting force.
