This is a question I have for a presentation on rotational motion: "A solid cylinder rolls down an incline faster than a hoop [or say an open cylinder], whether or not they have the same mass or diameter. The hoop has greater rotational inertia relative to its mass than a cylinder does." Now my question is when they reach the bottom of the incline to a flat surface, which one will roll the farthest? (if their masses are the same) Suppose the amount of friction and air resistance are the same for both.
The Attempt at a Solution
I'm guessing that the hoop will since it has greater rotational inertia to keep it rolling, but another professor thinks it may be the solid cylinder.
