Hi All, How can I find of the speed of rotation without rpm or any speed? A bearing on a flywheel has a diameter of 28.0mm and axial length 18.0mm with a radial clearance of 14.4 micro m. The kinematic viscosity of the lubricating oil is 2.09 x 10^5 m^2 S^1 and the density is 835kg m^3. If the power loss of the bearing is 1.34KW, how is it possible to calculate the rotation? I am unable to calculate the angular velocity and rotation rate without ω? ω = 2 πn/60 I have also tried using Petrov's equation Power loss  2 πR³lw²/Cr. Any guidance would be appreciated.

I think Petroff's equation is the one to use here. Can you rearrange it to make the angular velocity the subject?

Hi Benit13, I was thinking the same but doubting myself its the wrong approach. I will try rearranging the equation, not an easy one is it. Many thanks.
