Cliff,

The closest demo in the Bib I know of is 1Q50.72 "Ship Stabilizer".
However, I am thinking that your demo should be in the 1Q20. section.
On second thought, it doesn't really fit there. Probably better would
be the 1M50. section on Mechanical Power. 1M50.40 "Stored Energy in a
Flywheel" perhaps.
What do you think?
