How would i calculate the force acting on the flywheel during a car

    Crash? Just the force from the deceleration not actually being crushed. Thanks

    You need to be more specific about the situation you are considering.
    The force will be dependent on the flywheel mass, moment of inertia and the time it takes to stop.
