Real Engineering: Can We Create Artificial Gravity?

The equation is a=(w^2)*r where a is the acceleration, w is the angular velocity and r is the radius. First we must convert RPM to radians per second. There is 2(pi) radians per revolution and 60 seconds in a minute. So one RPM equals 2(pi)/2. We then simply enter these values into the equation. For …
