State 2 factors that affect the centripetal force for a object having a circular path.

Answer: Can be any 2 of mass, velocity or radius of path. 

The formula for the centripetal force (resultant) acting  F=m(v^2)/r. Therefore the variables are mass, velocity for the object and the radius of the circular path the object is on.
