## Some basic Physical Principals:

**Calculate robot speed:**
(pi*D*RPM*60) / 100 000 = robot speed in km/h

Where: pi=3.14 . . .

D=Diameter of wheel in centimeters

RPM=Wheel rotational speed in revoloutions per minute

**Calculate required battery size:**
This is often no easy feat, as there are many variables that come into play, and every fight is different.

It is generally easier just to investigate what others with similar drive line components are using.

However, it is possible to obtain a reasonably accurate result using the relevant infomation at Paul Hills

To obtain a more accurate figure,

EDTSim gives better results, based on your own drive train setup, and also

includes a lots of other performance data.

**Calculate energy of a spinning mass:**

Or if you don't like maths, the calculator will do most of the calculations for you:
