I'm looking at a ship that is pretty big. About 720 feet from nose to tail, with two stonking big rockets on the sides, these will flip for deceleration. At roughly the same rotational pivot point, in the middle of the ship there is, for want of a better word, a "Slot", inside which sits a bloody great big hamster wheel. This will be "roughly" 240' diameter, or about 750' circumference. (About 60' across its edge.) The habitation section is on the very outer edge of the wheel, and is about 10-12' "high" with the floor on the outer ring and the ceiling closer to the centre.
The rotation is along the shape of the ship, rather than at 90 degrees. So it appears like a huge wheel in the middle of the vehicle, (a bit like those old one wheeled gyro toy cars they made years ago...)
Q1 Given the dimensions, how fast would that ring need to spin for the passengers on the outer "habitation" section to experience as close to Earth type gravity as possible?
Q2 follow up... Also, with the option of either Short powerful acceleration + equally heavy deceleration and coasting in the middle, vs. slow accelerate to halfway point and slow decelerate back to zero, would either model dramatically impact the passengers in the hamster wheel? Basically, would the ship need to hit a "cruising speed" before deploying the rotation on the habitation ring?
