Radius of Man

‘Radius of Man’

Bodies rotating with earth’s angular velocity possess an acceleration gradient that is a function of a height. This painting illustrates how the mass of a typical person provides the extra gravitational attraction required to balance that gradient. The painting also illustrates how the point at which the earth’s gravitational force balances the gravitational attraction exerted by a person treated as a point mass is of similar scale to the cell diameter.
