# How do you convert RPM to G?

## How do you convert RPM to G?

g = rpm2 x r x 1.118×10-5 Note: g-force is sometimes called relative centrifugal force (rcf). These units are the same.

How do you convert G RPM to centrifugation?

g = (1.118 x 10-5) x R x S2 Where g is the relative centrifugal force , R is the radius of the rotor in centimeteres and S is the speed of the centrifuge in revolutions per minute (RPM).

### Is RPM and G the same?

g Force or Relative Centrifugal Force (RCF) is the amount of acceleration to be applied to the sample. A good, precise protocol for centrifugation instructs you to use the g force rather than RPMs because the rotor size might differ, and g force will be different while the revolutions per minute stay the same.

Is RPM the same as RCF?

Relative Centrifugal Force (RCF) or g force is the acceleration applied to the sample. Centrifugation protocols use Relative centrifugal force (RCF) as this is more precise than RPM because the rotor size might differ, and RCF will be different while the revolutions per minute stay the same. …

## What is the RPM of Eppendorf micro centrifuge?

With their space-saving design and user-friendly operating concept, these centrifuges are ideal for everyday routine tasks. In both devices 24 or 36 Eppendorf micro test tubes can be centrifuged simultaneously in a 45° ﬁxed-angle rotor at 16,100 rcf (13,200 rpm).

How are rpm and RCF related in a microcentrifuge?

Many microcentrifuges only have settings for speed (revolutions per minute, RPM), not relative centrifugal force, but to be more accurate, certain procedures necessitate precise centrifugation conditions, which must be specified in terms of relative centrifugal force (RCF) expressed in units of gravity (times gravity or × g).
