You have a bike tire with X mass and Y moment of inertia.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

You hold the tire on a vertical plane just slightly above the ground. You then spin it to give it Z amount of angular momentum.

If you were to let the tire drop to the ground, what would its acceleration and final velocity be? (not taking into account drag)
