It has been suggested that rotating cylinders about 10 mi long and 5.6 mi in diameter be placed in space and used as colonies. What angular speed must such a cylinder have so that the centripetal acceleration at its surface equals the free-fall acceleration?

    take 5.6/2=2.8
    convert 2.8miles into meters=4506
    9.8/4506= .002174878
    now squaroot that and you wil getthe answer which is
