1. I assume you mean in a centrifuge?

If so

Ac = v^2/R
so
g = v^2/R
v = sqrt ( R g) = sqrt (9.81 R)

Circular motion: Not sure if I did this right. I need to find the speed that a spaceship needs to rotate to create an artificial gravity of 9.8m/s^2 (at feet) r=10m a=V^2/r 9.8=v^2/r root of(9.8*10)=v v=9.9m/s is this close?
