An apparatus of the figure below is designed to study insects at an acceleration of magnitude 940 m/s2 (= 96g). The apparatus consists of a 2.0-m rod with insect containers at either end. The rod rotates about an axis perpendicular to the rod and at its center.
(a) How fast does an insect move when it experiences a radial acceleration of 940 m/s2?
(b) What is the angular speed of the insect?
