What linear speed must a 6.0×10−2 hula hoop have if its total kinetic energy is to be 0.15 J ? Assume the hoop rolls on the ground without slipping.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So, i know that the formula for linear momentum is p=mv. however, the hoop is circular, meaning it has to have a rotational velocity (omega). I cant seem to figure out how the Joules play into any equation that helps link linear and rotational speeds. Anyone know of any formulas I can use for this problem?
