A heavy ring of mass m is clamped on the periphery of a light circular disc. A small particle having equal mass is clamped at the centre of the disc. The system is rotated in such a way that the centre moves in a circle of radius r with a uniform speed v. We conclude that an external force

1. $$\frac{mv^2}{r}$$ must be acting on the central particle

2. $$\frac{2mv^2}{r}$$ must be acting on the central particle

3. $$\frac{2mv^2}{r}$$ must be acting on the system

4. $$\frac{2mv^2}{r}$$ must be acting on the ring
