A bowling ball ( I = 2/5 M ^R2 ) encounters a 0.8 m vertical rise on the way back to the ball rack. If the ball rolls without slipping with a center of mass translational velocity of 4.0 m/s at the bottom of the rise.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How do I find the rotational kinetic energy of the ball at the top or bottom without knowing the radius? I know how to find the translational speed at the top.
