**Jennifer**, Thursday, October 4, 2012 at 11:57am1.00 * 103 rpm is a unit of angular velocity.

a = w^2 * r, where a is radial acceleration, and w is angular velocity, and r is the radius

You need to express your answer as a multiple of g, which is in units of m/s^2

Convert w = 1.00 * 103 rpm to rps (rotations per minute to rotations per second)

convert r = 8.16 cm to m

plug these numbers into the equation to get the acceleration, divide by g (9.8 m/s^2) to get answer

To do this, multiply the rpm by 2π and then divide by 60. Use that and the radius in the formula then divide by 9.8 and you got it!
