Answer to Question #66350 in Mechanics | Relativity for Irshad

Question #66350
What is artificial gravity how it is produced.If a space craft of length 20m enters in space then what should be its velocity to produce artificial gravity as earth.
Expert's answer
Artificial gravity is an acceleration resulting from the application of a force. In the context of manned spaceflight, artificial gravity may alleviate the adverse health effects of prolonged weightlessness. Astronauts routinely experience intermittent linear accelerations caused by the force of a rocket engine. However, the term artificial gravity usually refers to a sustained Normal force provided by a rigid structure in uniform circular motion. Practical outer space applications of artificial gravity for humans have not yet been built and flown, principally because of the large size of the spacecraft required to produce a useful centripetal acceleration, comparable to little g.

Velocity has no meaning here. It must be g acceleration of 9.8 m/s2. The velocity will always growing.
