A space station shaped like a giant wheel has a radius of 100m and, when empty, a moment of inertia of 5.04E+8kgm^2.

A space station shaped like a giant wheel has a radius of 100m and, when empty, a moment of inertia of 5.04E+8kgm^2. A crew of 195 are living on the rim, and the station's rotation causes the crew to experience an acceleration of 1.00g. 0 When 151 people move to the center of the station for a meeting, the angular speed changes. What acceleration is experienced by the people remaining at the rim? Assume that the average mass of each inhabitant is 64.8kg.
