# Rotational frequency

1. A space station in the form of a large wheel, 124 m in diamete, rotates to provide and "artificial gravity" of 9.3 m/s^2 for people located on the outer rim.

Find the rotational frequency of the wheel that will produce this effect.

2. v^2=gr, w=v/r, w/2pi = frequency

3. To find velocity I used v^2=gr. I know that w=v/r so with my found velocity I divided it by the radius (62). to find the frequency=> w/2pi = frequency. I must be missing a step because the answer I got is wrong. Help would be fancied. thank you!
