Homework Statement



10 lbs. steel wheel with its center of gravity at 6 inches from the axle rotating within a circular frame at 7200 rpm


Homework Equations



10lbs. x 6 inches x 72002rpms x 0.000028416(constant) = 88,385 lbs.

The Attempt at a Solution



10 x 6 x 72002 x 0.000028416 = 88,385 lbs.

The question is "Are my calculations correct and does that mean that the force against the perimeter frame from the steel wheel is actually 88,385 lbs.? If not what is the actual force?
