Energy from RPM of a wheel

  1. Aug 29, 2011 #1
    How can I calculate the amount of energy I would get if I spun a wheel at a certain about of RPM? I know this is a general question, but I am looking for any kind of calculation I can use.

    Thanks, and what would be a rough conversion of this energy into electrical energy?
