To create artificial gravity, the space station shown in the drawing is rotating at a rate of 1.60 rpm. The radii of the cylindrically shaped chambers have the ratio rA/rB = 3.00. Each chamber A simulates an acceleration due to gravity of 9.60 m/s2. Find values for (a) rA, (b) rB, and (c) the acceleration due to gravity that is simulated in chamber B

  1. n=1.6 rpm
    ω = 2πn/60 = 0.168 rad/sec

    a) rA = a/ ω ² = 9.6/0.168² = 340m

    b) rB = rA/3 = 113.4 m

    c) aB = rB • ω ² = 3.2 m/s²
