Homework Help: physics.

Posted by Disy on Saturday, January 5, 2008 at 7:57pm.

A flywheel is a solid disk that rotates about an axis that is perpendicular to the disk at its center. Rotating flywheels provide a means for storing energy in the form of rotational kinetic energy and are being considered as a possible alternative to batteries in electric cars. The gasoline burned in a 300-mile trip in a typical midsize car produces about 1.2*10^9 J of energy. How fast would a 13-kg flywheel with a radius of 0.30m have to rotate to store this much energy? Give your answer in rev/min.

I need some hints to do this problem. Please help. Thanks.
