A flywheel is a solid disk that rotates about an axis that is perpendicular to the disk at its center.

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 350-mile trip in a typical midsize car produces about 1.90 109 J of energy. How fast would a 13-kg flywheel with a radius of 0.40 m have to rotate to store this much energy? Give your answer in rev/min.
Enter a number.1 rev/min
