RCF and k-Factor Calculator 

3000 rpm
rpm
At 3000 rpm, the RCF equals 1,449 x g at rMAX and 981 x g at rAV.
The k Factor (adjusted) is 29,178.

RPM Calculator (from RCF) 

80 x g
x g
To achieve an RCF of 80 x g at rMAX, set the speed to 705 rpm.
To achieve an RCF of 80 x g at rAV, set the speed to 857 rpm.
