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

A solid sphere with mass "m" and radius "r", slides (without rotating) on a frictionless horizontal surface, with speed of V[0].

At time t[0] the sphere roll on a surface with friction "u", at time t[0] the ball is starts rotating as it glides aswell. At time t[1] the ball only rotates.

2. Relevant equations

What is the balls center mass velocity as a function of time, from time t[0] to time t[1].

3. The attempt at a solution

I have been trying to take a look at the balls inertia and torque on the ball from the friction. But the only result I got was that the ball gains speed, an that is nonsence.

Plzz... help this is a homeasignment that comes down on my final grade.
