a bowling ball is given an initial speed vo on an alley such that it initially slides without rolling. The coefficient of friction between ball and alley is u.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

find the speed of the ball's center of mass vCM at the time pure rolling motion occurs.

i used (1/2)mvo^2=(1/2)mVCM^2 + (1/2)Iw^2

I=(2/5)mr^2

i got vo^2=(7/5)v^2 which is wrong.

how do i solve this problem?
