A disk is released from rest from the top of an incline. The bottom of the incline is a vertical distance h=15m below the top. The wheel rolls without slipping. The moment of inertia of the disk is given by I=1/2MR^{2}. What is the translational velocity of the disk at the bottom of the incline? (use g=9.8m/s2)

2. Relevant equations

PE= mgy and KE= 1/2mv^2 and ω=v/r

3. The attempt at a solution

I ended up with 17.1 m/s but it keeps telling me its wrong
