A cast -iron flywheel rim, .26 oz. per cu. in, weighs 13, 700 lbs. The rim is of rectangular section. The thickness radially x, the size the other way is 1.6x. Inside radius is 14x. Determine actual sizes.
What is known:
A flywheel is cast - iron.
Weight - .26 oz. per cu. in. , 13,700 lbs.
Thickness - radially x.
Size the other way - 1.6x
Inside radius - 14x.
Want to know:
A flywheel is a circle.
I believe radially is a spoke.
How do I solve ?
Please reply to my question. Thanks.
I think your rendition of the question may be fatally flawed.
Can you cut and paste from the website that you obtained the question or did you transcribe from a book?
I've seen two on-line books with that question, do you have the hard copy, a real book?
