Under what conditions does the astronaut’s weight on a spacecraft turn out to be equal to his weight on the Earth’s surface?
September 17, 2020
There are two options:
1) the spacecraft must move progressively with an acceleration equal to the acceleration of free fall on the Earth’s surface;
2) the spacecraft must rotate with such an angular velocity so that the centripetal acceleration at the location of the astronaut on the spacecraft is 9.8 m / s2.
