Its been more then a few years since I took Physics in High school, but a Little research led me to a equation to determine how much simulated gravity some one might feel on a rotating station.

A

_{c}=V

^{2}/r

The Station in question is O'Neill style rotating cylinder; with a Diameter of 20km I'm trying to determine how fast it should be rotating for it to have a 1g on the inside.

9.81 = V

^{2}/10km

10 km * 1000 = 10000m

9.81*10000 = 313.209

^{2}

Therefor the station should be rotating at 313.21 m/s? This seems way off to me
