Recall the formula:
$F = mrw^2, w = 4\pi$
$F = 0.015\times 0.8\times16\pi^2$

Thanks to r1ckworthy for pointing out my mistake in converting Grams to Kg hahaaha

It appears they've made a mistake.
Recall the formula:
$F = mrw^2, w = 4\pi$
In their calculations I think they've forgotten the Pi which gives you the answer of 1.9. The actual answer would be:
$F = 0.15\times 0.8\times16\pi^2$

Hey DrDusk,
Your conversion for 'm' is wrong, it should be 0.015 kg instead of 0.15 kg, which when I calculated it checks out to B  . Great explanation!
