## Homework Statement

A space station has a radius of 200 meters. An astronaut has a mass of 55 kilograms and the station rotates at 1.5 rev/min. What is the period of rotation for the station?

## Homework Equations

[tex]\tau[/tex]=2[tex]\pi[/tex]r/v

a=v

^{2}/r

Fg=mg

F

_{NET}=ma

## The Attempt at a Solution

I think the F

_{NET}equation is F

_{sp}=ma and I'm pretty sure you have to solve for [tex]\tau[/tex] but in order to do that I need to solve for a. How do I either find a velocity or acceleration to do this?
