An advertisement claims that a centrifuge can produce a radial acceleration of 3,524g at 4,608 rev/min. Calculate the required radius of the centrifuge.

• Physics -

3524*9.8=w^2/r

change w to 4608*2PI/60 and solve for radius r. It wont be long.

I'm still not getting the right answer. It asks to convert it to centimeters but even when I do that I am still getting it wrong.
