To simulate the extreme accelerations during launch, astronauts train in a large centrifuge. If the centrifuge diameter is 13.5m , what should be its rotation period to produce a centripetal acceleration of

If the centrifuge diameter is 13.5m , what should be its rotation period to produce a centripetal acceleration of 4 g?

  • physics - ,

    Given:
    r = 13.5[m]
    a = -4g, where g=9.8[m/s^2]
    Use:
    a = - r ω^2
    Where ω is the angular velocity (in radian per second).

    Find: ω

    Use this to find the rotation period.

    Graham, what would be the formula i would use for the rotation period? i tried v=(2*pi*R)/T and got T to be 50 but my answer is still coming out wrong.
