Bowling ball problems

  1. Dec 9, 2003 #1
    a bowling ball is racing a cue ball down a 30* incline. the incline is 2 m long. what is the translational speed of each ball at the bottom.
    wouldnt i need a radius of each ball to be able to find the translational speed?

    the velocity could be independent of the radius
