## Is G the same as RPM or RCF?

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.

## How do you calculate RPM to RCF?

RCF/RPM Conversion

- Use online converters.
- Use the formula: a. RCF = (rpm)2 × 1.118 × 10-5 × r. b. RPM = √[RCF/(r × 1.118)] × 1,000.
- Use a nomogram (nomograph).
- Use Beckman Coulter rotors speed converters here.

**How do you convert g to RPM in centrifugation?**

“The relationship between RPM and RCF is as follows: g = (1.118 × 10-5) R S2 Where g is the relative centrifugal force, R is the radius of the rotor in centimeters, and S is the speed of the centrifuge in revolutions per minute.”

### What is the relation between RPM and RCF?

RCF, RPM and r are linked by the equation for calculating RCF. RCF = 11.2 × r (RPM/1000)2 or RCF = 1.12 × 10-5 (RPM)2. This equation can be rearranged to calculate RPM from a given RCF. In this manual, instructions for centrifugation are given as spinning at a given RCF (g) for a certain length of time.

### Is rpm and g the same?

G is the gravitational force and rpm is revolution per minute. These are dependent on the radius of the centrifuge. RPM (revolutions per minute) is not as useful a unit, because the force varies with the radius of your machine (the bigger the radius, the more acceleration is applied to your samples for the same RPM).

**What is the difference between rpm and G-Force?**

RPM (revolutions per minute) is the way in which we describe how fast a centrifuge is going. G-Force or RCF (relative centrifugal force) is the force being exerted on the rotor contents. RCF is a result of the rotor revolving so is dependent on RPM.

#### What is rpm to G?

The g force rpm conversion formula is as follows: RCF = 1.118 * 10-5 * r * (rpm)2. RCF = Relative Centrifuge Force, in “g” r = Rotor radius, in “cm” rpm = Rotation speed, rotations per minute, in “rpm”

#### How much is 300g in rpm?

The point at which the straightedge intersects the Speed of rotation (rpm) axis is the rpm. For example, if the rotating radius is 14 cm and the G-force (g) is, 300g (Nidacon protocol), the relative centrifugal force is 1383 rpm.
