We are now in a position to work out what fraction of the KE goes into linear motion and what into rotational. That will give us the ralationship between distance moved down the ramp and linear velocity.What are we working towards here, total Kinetic energy ? Sorry, it's just not clicking.
What's our end goal here? If I know what we're working towards that might help me put the pieces into place.
We have a value for x, are we trying to work out ω, or looking for something to substite in place of v? Sorry, i've looked at so many formulas its making less and less sense.
Was the other person here posting about effective mass on point, or was that a red herring?
