How fast does an insect move when it experiences a centripetal acceleration of 920 m/s2?

The apparatus of the figure below is designed to study insects at an acceleration of magnitude 920 m/s2. The apparatus consists of a 2-m rod with insect containers at either end. The rod rotates about an axis perpendicular to the rod and at its center. (a) How fast does an insect move when it experiences a centripetal acceleration of 920 m/s2? (b) What is the angular speed of the insect?

    Well, a = v^2 / r so v = sq rt (a*r) in m/s (r = 1 m)

    For angular speed, v = w * r so w = v / r in radians/s

    If you need degrees/s, just multiply by 180/pi

    who cares but how fast would you move if i kicked you up the a,s,s
