A 2.0 x 10^{3}kilogram car travels at a constant speed of 12 meters per second around a circular curve of radius 30. meters.
As the car goes around the curve, the centripetal
force is directed

toward the center of the circular curve

away from the center of the circular curve

tangent to the curve in the direction of motion

tangent to the curve opposite the direction of motion
Correct Answer Number: 1
