Hi guys,

I don't have much knowledge of physics sadly, and I want to build a machine that can spin a disk.

My question is - How can I know the weight I can spin on a motor?

I need to be able to spin around 5-6kg, for 350 RPM, and I'm not sure I'm aiming for the correct motor.

I'm thinking of a 1HP, 1730 RPM motor, that I can slow down to get to the correct speed.

I've done some calculations, but I'm not sure I know exactly what equations I'm supposed to look at. Also, I don't know how to calculate the acceleration of a motor.

I would really appreciate the help, and I hope this is the correct place for me to ask these kind of questions.

Thanks!
