    Help with physics

    A 60-kg person on a merry-go-round is traveling in a circle with a radius of 3 m at a speed of 3 m/s

    a) what is the magnitude of the acceleration experienced by this person?
    9/3=3m/s2

    B) what is the magnitude of the net force experienced by this person?

    F= m x ac
    Fc= 60(3)= 180

    or this equation

    vfy=voy+at

    Which equation should be used for B...I'm not sure

    this one

    the other equation is invalid since acceleration is not constant
