So I have a piston connected to a flywheel. If i push the piston with a force F, how does the equation of motion look? I'm not confident about putting inertias into the same equation as accelerations?
F = ma
F = I(theta'')
The force is changing with time.
So i have just realised that T = Ia, a is angular acceleration.
So if i find resultant force of piston acting along line of tangential velocity on the flywheel, then moultiply it by r of the flywheel,
Fr = Ia, then rearrange for a and i have angular acceleration of flywheel?
