What I have are two wheels, weight assumed at 50 kg overall for both, joined by an axle. The wheels are 900 mm apart from the centre of one tire to the centre of the other. The diameter of the tire is 690 mm. How do I calculate the moment of inertia in order to find the torque in the centre of the axle?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For the torque calculation I know the angular acceleration is -0.43rads^-2
