Certain neutron stars (extremely dense stars) are believed to be rotating at about 1 rev/s. if such a star has a radius of 20 km (a typical value), (a) what is the speed of a point on the equator of the star, and (b) what is the centripetal acceleration of this point?

Therefore, the speed with which the point at equator of a Neutron star rotates is 1.26 x 105.

Therefore, the acceleration of the point on equator of Neutron star is 7.89 x 105 m /s2. .

(​a) speed = 40pi km/s
(b) acceleration = 80(pi)2 km/s
