**1. Homework Statement**

**2. Homework Equations**

this was a formula I just found on Wikipedia, but it seemed to be right for this problem.

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

so we have the diameter of the of the wheel = 0.7 m

mass of wheel = 0.25 kg

distance of the rod attached = 0.2m

angular velocity of wheel converted to radians = 27 rad/s

moment of inertia for wheel = m r

^{2}

T

_{s}= is the period of of the wheel

T

_{p}is what we are solving for.

which comes out to be 639.7 seconds. if my math is correct. but this answer seems extremely unlikely

so the wheel moves to the left, but how can I figure out the speed at which it moves at?
