I am confused as to how i solve for height in this problem. I can solve for the distance up the ramp the ball goes but not for the height above the ground.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The problem states: A steel ball has a mass of 45 grams and a diameter of 2.2 cm. The ball is moving and rolling at an initial velocity (not known) when it starts rolling up a 35 degree ramp and comes to a stop after turning 12 revolutions.

I solved for how far up the ramp the ball went by taking the 12 rev *2π rad * .011m /1 rev / 2π rad and got .132m.

I have looked at all the equations that i have but can't figure out how to solve for how high the ball goes up?
