(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A bowling ball with radius (R) and mass (m)hit the ground and traveled a distance (d) before it started to roll due to the force of friction cause by the coefficient of friction (mu) between the ball and the lane.

2. Relevant equations

I=2/5mR^2

F=ma

torque=I*alpha

F(friction)=mu*F

v=w*alpha

3. The attempt at a solution

Express the distance d in term of R, m, v and mu.
