While riding behind a car traveling at 3.00 m/s, you notice that one of the car's tires has a small hemispherical bump on it's rim. If the radii of the car's tires are .300 m, what is the bump's period of oscillation?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can anyone tell me where to start with this? I'm actually not even sure what formula to use. I think I have to use T=2pi(I/(mgd))^.5

I don't know how to calculate the moment of inertia in that, though.
