To determine
The concept behind the proposal of rotating cylinders in space as colonies.

Explanation

When an object rotates, acceleration will be created towards the centre of the orbit to which the object is rotating. This acceleration is called centripetal acceleration.

When the cylinder is rotating a centripetal acceleration will be created which will have a magnitude of,
