How fast (in rpm) must a centrifuge rotate if a particle 8.06 cm from the axis of rotation is to experience an acceleration of 79000 g?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 4:49 pm ad1c9bdddf
The acceleration experienced by a particle in a centrifuge is the centripetal acceleration. (Any object travelling in a circle is accelerating, since its direction - and therefore its velocity - is always changing).
The magnitude of the centripetal acceleration depends on the speed of the particle (v) and its distance from the axis of ...
The solution explains the answers with formulas and calculations.
