## Homework Statement

An astronaut is rotated in a centrifuge of radius 4.0 m.

## Homework Equations

v = omega * radius

a = v^2/radius

## The Attempt at a Solution

Ok, so I first found the omega for this acceleration, which came out to be

omega = 3.56179 s^-1

then I decided that since the it is revolutions per minute, I multiplied the vaule of omega by 60 seconds, and divided the value by the circumference of the circle.

(2*pi*4)/210.107 = .119619

So this answer is completely wrong because it does not make any sense whatsoever
