How much Newtons is needed to turn a wheel with radius 1 meter and mass of one kilogram and width of 1cm, exerting force on the outer circumference of the wheel and assuming no friction occurs?

The formula for calculating necessary Newtons is force = mass x acceleration, or F = ma.
These measurements are important because they determine the moment of inertia for the wheel, which is a crucial factor in calculating the necessary Newtons for turning.
The larger the wheel and mass, the greater the moment of inertia and therefore the more necessary Newtons will be required to turn it. The width of the wheel also plays a role, as a wider wheel will have a larger radius and thus a larger moment of inertia.
Yes, there are other factors such as the surface on which the wheel is turning, the coefficient of friction, and any external forces acting on the wheel. These factors may increase or decrease the necessary Newtons required to turn the wheel.
The necessary Newtons can be calculated experimentally by measuring the force required to turn the wheel with a known mass and width. This can be repeated with different masses and widths to determine the relationship between necessary Newtons and these factors.
