RPM = Revolutions Per Minute
RCF = Relative Centrifugal Force (also known as "G-Force")
Centrifuge RCF Calculation: RCF = 1.12 x R(mm) x Krpm x Krpm
R: Centrifuge rotor radius (mm)
Krpm: Centrifuge speed in thousands
Example: If rotor radius is 102mm, speed is 3.4Krpm (3400rpm), then RCF = 1.12 x 102 x 3.4 x 3.4 = 1320g
