A laboratory centrifuge on earth makes n rpm and produces an acceleration of 3.20 g at its outer end.
A) What is the acceleration (in g's, i.e., acceleration divided by g) at a point halfway out to the end?
B) This centrifuge is now used in a space capsule on the planet Mercury, where g_mercury is 0.378 what it is on earth. How many rpm (in terms of n) should it make to produce 7 g_mercury at its outer end?
