Science-Physics: Space Station
posted by Gerald .
Hello, I am having trouble with this physics problem. Any suggestions with this?
Sketch and calculate a spacestation that would meet the requirement of having a 2m tall person experience a 10 % difference in centripetal acceleration between bottom of feet and top of head when standing on the inside of the outside ring. Include Specifications (velocity, acc...)
Isn't centripetal acceleration angularspeed (in radians/sec) times radius. Here the distance between the feet/head radii is 2m.
