To find the rotational rate N of a space station, the formula can be used.

Here, a is the acceleration and r represents the radius of the space station in meters. To find the value of r that will make N simulate the effect of gravity on Earth, the equation must be solved for r, using the required value of N.

If a = 9.8 m per sec^{2}, find the value of r (to the nearest tenth) using each value of N.

(a) N = 0.063 rotation per sec

(b) N = 0.04 rotation per sec
