Can you guys give me some problems to solve, based on the picture provided?

You can choose which variables you want to be "given" -- I would just like some problems about rolling on an inclined plane to do to prepare for my final.

if it has a radius R and an initial velocity V, determine the height.

Conversly, and with some numbers;

Find the speed of a cylinder of radius R = 12cm, when released from rest at the top of a smooth inclined plane at an angle $\phi = \frac{pi}{6}$ from the horizontal and a slope length of d = 8m.
