Rolling on an inclined plane

    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.

    bad question
    this instead--sorry
    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 [itex]\phi = \frac{pi}{6}[/itex] from the horizontal and a slope length of d = 8m.
