## Homework Statement

A fairgrounds ride spins its occupants inside a flying-saucer-shaped container. If the horizontal circular path the riders follow has a 8.00 m radius, at how many revolutions per minute will the riders be subjected to a centripetal acceleration 1.95 times that of gravity?

## Homework Equations

α= 1.95*9.8m/s^2= 19.11

ω=ν/r

## The Attempt at a Solution

So, I attempted this by solving for α =19.11m/s^2

Then ω=√19.11/8.00= 1.54 rad/s

And this is where I get stuck or confused, or maybe I haven't done it right at all?
