Technology / Motors / Inertial Load: A load (flywheel, fan, etc.) which tends to cause the motor shaft to continue to rotate after the power has been removed (stored kinetic energy). If this continued rotation cannot be tolerated, some m MORE

Technology / Motors / Wk2 (Moment Of Inertia): The moment of inertia is expressed as Wk2or WR2in terms of pound-feet squared. It is the product of the weight of the object in pounds and the square of the radius of gyration in feet. If the applicat MORE

Technology / Aviation / Inertia Force: A force due to inertia, or the resistance to acceleration or deceleration. MORE

Science / Tides and Currents / Inertial Flow: A solution of the relative hydrodynamic equations of motion in which only the horizontal component of the Coriolis and centrifugal forces are balanced. This anticyclonic flow results from a sudden app MORE

Technology / Motors / J Seconds (Dc Motors): J is the per unit moment of inertia. It is defined as the time in seconds to accelerate the motor armature to rated base speed using rated full load torque. J = WR2x Base Rpm(seconds) or 308 x Rated T MORE

Science / Tides and Currents / Equilibrium Theory: A model under which it is assumed that the waters covering the face of the Earth instantly respond to the tide-producing forces of the Moon and Sun to form a surface of equilibrium under the action of MORE
