Converting axial pressure to centripetal force

  1. Jun 23, 2015 #1
    I am working on a case where a spring foce is applied to the center of wheel . the wheel is pulled by a motor with a rope tied on the wheel.

    I know the spring force in the centere of the wheel.
    how can i know the centripetla force exerted by it

    I do not understand how you drive the wheel or how the spring is mounted.
    Can you please provide a diagram of the setup.

    The Spring applies some load to prevent the wheel from rotating lie a brake
    Motor pulls the wheel in front direction.
