A challenge for those of you with some math skills. we know the elevation and speed required to put a satellite into a geosynchronous orbit(or geostationary if you prefer), and that any further out we go; the object is effected by centripetal and centrifugal forces, causing objects to fly away from the earth.
Here's the challenge. At what elevation and speed, would a planetary ring (around the earth, laughs for other planets) be required to be in both stationary orbit and provide enough rotational forces; to cause a 1G environment, for those that are on/in the ring?
must provide math, and good luck to all of you.
I started thinking about this as a way to provide food for the growing population of earth, while much of the space we still have available is slowly being consumed. with a controlled environment, and sectional production; I believe that we would have food clean or chemicals, insects, and funguses, that the food produced would be healthier then the food we receive now. at the equator, night for the earth would become day for the ring; and night for the ring, would be day on earth.
