hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

just wanted some advice on calculating a rate ofdecelerationof a moving vehicle, if we work out theangular accelerationof the wheel.

so angular acceleration is dw/dt and is given asdw/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,
