1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A solid, uniform spherical ball rolls without slipping up a hill. At the top of the hill it is moving horizontally, and then it goes over a vertical cliff. How far from the foot of the cliff does the ball land, and how fast is it moving before it lands.
Use conservation of energy to find the velocity of the ball at the top of the cliff. Then use projectile motion to find how far it falls. Use table to find moment of inertia of the ball.
