Angular Acceleration question

  1. Apr 8, 2007 #1
    hi all,

    just wanted some advice on calculating a rate of deceleration of a moving vehicle, if we work out the angular acceleration of the wheel.

    so angular acceleration is dw/dt and is given as dw/dt=(m1-m2)/I

    (i.e moments of force divided by moments of Inertia)

    dw/dt is rad/s^2 and my deceleration needs to be m/s^2

    some help is greatly appreciated,

    Some help :smile:

    Look for Kinematics, and Instantaneous center of rotation.
