## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everyone,

I've got a set of airfoil blades here which are homogenious and have a constant profile (x-section). Each blade is of equal length (as should be).

What would the best way be to calculate the centrifugal force on the blade root as a result of constant angular speed? say o - rads/s

I've just gotten a little confused about involving the 'centre of gyration'.

thanks
