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

An astronaut is standing in an space station that spins. The linear speed and the centripedal aceleration that he experiences are bigger on his feet than on his head.

Scientific experiments have proved that a difference of (1/100 )g wont produce this inconveniet for the astronaut.

What should be the radius that the space station must have in comparison with the hight h of the astronaut so that the difference of the aceleration between his head and his feet would be just (1/100) g ?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I dont know how to start to solve this problem can someone please provide help I must solve this problem for tomorrow.

Thanks a lot in advance.
