## Homework Statement

A spherical bowling ball with mass m = 3.4 kg and radius R = 0.115 m is thrown down the lane with an initial speed of v = 8.5 m/s. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the sliding ball and the ground is μ = 0.27. Once the ball begins to roll without slipping it moves with a constant velocity down the lane.3)How long does it take the bowling ball to begin rolling without slipping?

## Homework Equations

Torque = I (angular acceleration)

f=ma

I also drew the body diagram. I believe it would be the same when it is sliding and when it is not sliding.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I found the angular and linear acceleration when it is sliding but I am not sure how to figure out how long it slides for. I am thinking this has little to do with rotational dynamics and more to do with translational motion.
