Kinematics -- centrifuging a solution with bacteria 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In the lab, we have to separate the bacteria from the solution by centrifuging the solution with bacteria. Because the bacteria are more massive than the media molecules, they settle to the bottom of the container. For this question, we will neglect friction or resistance from the buffer (we will see it later). If the bacteria are spun at 100 xg, how long will it take for the bacteria to pellet to the bottom of a 10 cm centrifuge bottle? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution So I know that I have to find the time (t) I have no idea what 100 xg is--what is the unit 'xg'? Is 10 cm relevant to the question? If possible, can I be referred to another version of this problem or tutorial? I'm not sure what to do.
