Answer to Question #27538 in Mechanics | Relativity for hem raj
It is situated at a distance of 5 cm from the axis of rotation. Calculate the effective value of g
relative to the rotating frame of reference and the net centrifugal force on the bacteria.
a = nu × r^2 = 4pi × 10^3 × 0.05^2 = 31.4 m/s^2
where nu is the angular speed.
The centrifugal force then is product of the mass and centrifugal acceleration:
F = a × m = 31.4 × 2 × 10^(-24) = 62.8 × 10^(-24) N
