I need to determine the RPM just that the flywheel (that has an offset shaft) will travel faster than gravity (g force). Meaning my offset shaft will be falling faster than a falling object per se.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So flywheel has a diameter of 0.1524m.

h=1/2g*t^2

t=0.144s(assuming we did 1.5x(9.8m/s) with h=0.1524m)

angular velocity = 3.14/t = 3.14/0.144s= 21.82 rad/s

Therefore the RPM is 208 RPM (1 rad/s = 9.55 RPM)

Is this the right approach? Thank you.
