√ your expectations at the door

this gives a general idea of what is involved, yummy…

a few problems here:

1. conversions and equations: E=1/2MV2 relates to work done on an object linearly through space, where M=mass and V=velocity, without friction/resistance. What I need to look at is rotational kinetic energy, Er=1/2Iw2, where I=moment of inertia and w=angular velocity.

2. efficiency of conversion has many factors, such as motor type, gear ratio, rectification method, and storage type.

moral of the story –> keep your expectations low as to how much energy can be converted as usable.
