Homework Help: Another sliding question

  1. May 23, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    An object, a sphere or cylinder, is rolling down an incline and also slipping. How do you find the translational and angular speed?

    Does slipping decrease or increase the translational and rotational speeds? How so?
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    You won't get any help unless you show some effort to solve the problem. Have you tried a look at HyperPhysics ?
