You are consulting for an amusement park that wants to build a new "Rotor" ride. In order to increase capacity, they would like to build a unit with a 14.2-ft diameter. The Rotor should provide a centripetal acceleration of 3g. What must be the angular speed in revolutions per minute (rpm)?
The Attempt at a Solution
1ft=0.3048m---> 14.2ft*0.3048m/ft= 4.33m
4.33/2= 2.16(this is the radius)
344.77rpm is my final answer but I got that wrong, where did I go wrong in my calculations?
