Homework Help: No translational KE?

  1. Mar 6, 2014 #1

    So the initial potential energy is equal to the final potential energy plus rotational kinetic energy, right?
    Is the final translational kinetic energy also considered if energy is conserved?

    Thank you very much!

    Yes.Why not?
    If it had potential energy initially and that energy is transformed to other types,then yes.
