I don't know if this will be of any help to you, but you can calculate the
relative centrifugal force (RCF) for any rotor using the following
G = 0.00001118 * r * N^2
Where G is the RSC (gravities), r is the rotation radius in centimeters
and N is the rotor speed in rpm.
Additionnal tips and formulas on centrifugation can be found at:
