Answer to Question #17415 in Mechanics | Relativity for janice
The Gravitron is a circular carnival ride that is 6.2m in radius and spins at a high rate of speed in order to simulate gravity. What velocity is required to experience an acceleration equal to Earth's gravity (aka 1g)?
If the velocity were 2 times faster, how many g's would the riders feel?
How would the radius need to change to allow the riders to experience 5g's at this new velocity?
