A propeller (diameter $D=15\:m$) rotates at $N=1$ revolution per second $(rps)$. To understand the flow around the propeller, a lab-scale model is made. Important parameters to study the flow are velocity of the propeller tip $(V= \pi ND)$, diameter $D$ and acceleration due to gravity $(g)$. The lab-scale model is $1/100^{th}$ of the size of the actual propeller.

The rotation speed of the lab-scale model, to the nearest integer, should be ____________ $rps$.
