rpm and decelaration

Hey all

I have been trying to recall the formula for working out RPM and deccelaration and am having much trouble doing do.

I have a wheel on a fixed axis and it is flat (0degree tilt) I would like to be able to work out the revloution sper minute, also time per revolution. and also the (slow)decelaration of the wheel.

any help would be greatly appreicated

You need to have data to answer these questions, such as how far a point on the wheel moves in a given amount of time, how long it takes for the wheel to slow to a stop, etc. The question is too broad to answer at this point so if you have a specific example of what you are asking, please go ahead and post it.
