    RCF=[(rpmx2pi)/60]^2 x r/980 (980)(RCF)/r=[(rpmx2pi)/60]^2 ((980)(RCF)/r)^(1/2)=[(rpmx2pi)/60] [((980)(RCF)/r)^(1/2)](60)=(rpmx2pi) [((980)(RCF)/r)^(1/2)](60/2pi)=rpm

    RCF=[(rpmx2pi)/60]^2 x r/980 multiply both sides by reciprocal of r/980...which is 980/r (980)(RCF)/r=[(rpmx2pi)/60]^2 take the square root of both sides ((980)(RCF)/r)^(1/2)=[(rpmx2pi)/60] multiply both sides by reciprocal of 2pi/60... which is 60/2pi [((980)(RCF)/r)^(1/2)](60/2pi)=rpm RCF=600, r=7 [(980)(600)/7]^(1/2)[60/2pi]=rpm multiply: 980x600 [(588000/7]^(1/2)[60/2pi]=rpm divide: 588000/7 [(84000]^(1/2)[60/2pi]=rpm Take the square root of 84000 [289.827][60/2pi]=rpm multply 289.827 by 60 17389.65/2pi=rpm divide 17389.65 by 2 8694.826/pi=rpm divide 8694.826 by pi 2767.64909=rpm
