How do you use a DC motor to test the work of a flywheel? I'm trying to test the mechanical efficiency of a wobbler oscillating steam-engine. To test the output of the engine I was going to use a DC motor. Included in my calculations do I need to include the efficiency of the DC motor? If so, how would I do that?
