A bowling ball encounters a 0.760-m vertical rise on the way back to the ball rack, as the drawing illustrates. Ignore frictional losses and assume that the mass of the ball is distributed uniformly. The translational speed of the ball is 5.64 m/s at the bottom of the rise. Find the translational speed at the top.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have been working this one for the longest. I thought I was supposed to use the formula v= the square root of 2*gh but I think I am missing something I get 3.13 m/s however this is incorrect I belive.
