## Homework Statement

Initial training involves a slow onset rate (1 g/s) run up to a maximum of 9 g’s. After these initial runs, a rapid onset rate (ROR) of 6 g/s is typically performed; this is for high performance fighters. Finally, a Tactical Aircraft Combat Maneuver (TACM) may be performed. The sequence consisted of a Rapid Onset (6 g/s onset), beginning at 2g. The centrifuge then goes to 9g for 5 seconds, 5g for 1 second, then 5 seconds at 8g, 2 seconds at 4g, and 1.5g for 3 seconds. The centrifuge was finally brought to a complete stop.

You are an engineer in the centrifuge design team. You are asked to determine what type of torque will be required to generate TACM. Also calculate how much force will be placed on the centrifuge’s drive shaft. To do the calculation break this problem into subtasks:

1. Find the angular velocity required to produce the required g levels.

2. Determine the angular acceleration need to achieve a 6 g/s onset rate

3. Determine the torque needed to produce this angular acceleration.
