(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. i am in my first year of my engineering course, now doing a project that involves designing, building and testing a spring powered dragster. i am charged with the design of the wheels. so far i know that inertia is proportional to the square of the radius (k and m almost constant) and the spring has stiffness of 2.01 N/mm.

what equations are there that relate inertia to angular acceleration, how does the ratio front wheel ratio: back wheel ratios (apart from shifting the weight distibution), and what would k be for a wheel (im thinking 6 spokes equally spaced)?

thanks
