(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Determine the rotation rate, in rev/s, required to give an astronaut a centripetal acc of 3g while in circular motion with radius 9.45 m.

2. Relevant equations

ac=v^2/r

i did 3g=v^2/9.45 and got 1.76

then i used T=2pie(r)/v, put in T=2pie(9.45)/1.76

3. The attempt at a solution

with doing what i did above i got 33.73. this doesnt seem right. 33 rev/s? that would be fast!!!
