Homework Help: Physics

Posted by falcon306 on Saturday, July 23, 2011 at 5:45pm.

Flywheels are large, massive wheels used to store energy. They can be spun up slowly, then the wheel's energy can be released quickly to accomplish a task that demands high power. An industrial flywheel has a 1.5 m diameter and a mass of 250 kg. Its maximum angular velocity is 1200 rpm.

Q: A motor spins up the flywheel with a constant torque of 50 {\rm N \cdot m}. How long does it take the flywheel to reach top speed? In units of seconds.
