    Question 1 Tonn force pushing a tooth rod, connected to a axel with a flywheel, Size ?

    Hello

    I am doing some design for a wave power plant.

    To start out with an example:

    Looking at a 1 x 1 m plate, connected to a rod, getting pushed inn by the wave
    The force is app 1000 kg/m2, sinus for 5 secons, repeating every 10 seconds.
    with a spring sending the rod back out.

    This rod which is pushed in, has a toth bar , connecting to a vertical gear, mounted on an axel.
    On top of the axel there is a flywheel.m This gear must be a free wheel one way, fixed the other.



    What is the approx size of this gear ?
    The vertical rod will have a flywheel, how do I estimate the "best size for this "
    Then in the end there is a generator, connected directly or via a belt.

    Just a crazy Norwegian with a crazy idea !
