Unformatted text preview: plasma is 4.0 x 10-11 N. At how many revolutions per second should the centrifuge be operated. Solution: Find the velocity from: F c =mv 2 /r or m r F v c = = 141 m/s Find angular velocity from = v/r = 141/0.15 = 942.8 rad/s Convert to rev/s by dividing by 2 : = 150 rev/s...
