Flywheels constructions for experimenting for physics moment and energy

User this flywheels construction for experiments in physics. Start rotating the wheel and they would accumulate energy. You can try to calculate this energy and to measure how fast it would be consumed.

The construction is built with LEGO Mindstorms EV3

Physics in LEGO Mindstorms: Energy Accumulation and Conservation. Part 1

How can you accumulate some energy in an LEGO Mindstorms EV3 construction an use this energy at a later moment? How does a Flywheel work, why is it important and what is the purpose? What is energy, inertial moment and angular velocity. These are just some of the questions we would answer in this series on Physics and LEGO Mindstorms.
