# Energy Transfer in Mechanical Systems

A wheel is 800mm in diamiter and has a mass of 1000kg. on a horizontal surface without skidding, the vehicle accelerates uniformly at 0.5m/s^2 for 5 seconds. calculate the showings of all your workings to find the combined linear and kinetic energy of the wheel after the period of acceleration.
