calculating rotational g force
i observed a wind turbine w/ 253' diameter rotor (according to website http://www.hcpd.com/powerresources/w...ringswindfarm/ ) and timed rotation was 3.3 seconds. if my calculations are correct the tip speed was a whopping 229 mph!!!!!
is this enough info to calculate g forces at the tip???
any insight appreciated 1953greg
