12. REASONING The magnitude F c of the centripetal force that acts on the skater is given by Equation 5.3 as 2 c / Fm v r = , where m and v are the mass and speed of the skater, and r is the distance of the skater from the pivot. Since all of these variables are known, we can find the magnitude of the centripetal force.
