Question

Helicopter blades withstand tremendous stresses. In addition to supporting the weight of a helicopter, they are spun at rapid rates and experience large centripetal accelerations, especially at the tip.

r = 3.4 m
rpm = 340 rpm

A) Calculate the centripetal acceleration at the tip of a 3.4 m long helicopter blade that rotates at 340 rev/min in m/s2.

ac =

B) Compare the linear speed of the tip with the speed of sound (taken to be 340 m/s). Give your answer in percent of the speed of sound.

Vtip/Vsound (%) =
