Skating stunt "crack the whip"

In a skating stunt known as "crack-the-whip", a number of skaters hold hands and form a straight line. They try to skate so that the line rotates about the skater at one end, who acts as the pivot. The skater farthest out has a mass of 83.8 kg and is 6.20 m from the pivot. He is skating at a speed of 6.75 m/s. Determine the magnitude of the centripetal force that acts on him.
