How it Works: Comparing power and split values on the RP3 Monitor software

At RP3 the flywheel has been the constant between all our machines for decades. While rowing we continuously measure the angular velocity of the flywheel during both the drive and recovery phases.

During the recovery, while the flywheel is slowing down, we can calculate the amount of drag the flywheel experiences originating from all external sources such as air resistance, but also from, for example, wear of the bearings. Combining this with known physical constants we can deduct how much effort is required to overcome this drag.
