Velocity of centre of mass (rolling w/o slipping)

  1. Aug 25, 2014 #1
    Find the velocity of the centre of mass of a glass marble which rolls from rest down a
    gentle ramp inclined at an angle of 10o
    to the horizontal, without slipping, after it has
    travelled for a distance of 2.3 m.



    Moment of inertia of sphere: 2/5MR^2



    Past paper question that i'm really struggling with.

    Hi treb, and welcome to PF.
    How did you bypass the template ? Folks at PF don't enforce it strictly to pester you! Use it and you'll get answers.

    Hi, that was as close to the template as i could manage i'm afraid. I really don't know where to start with this question

    I need a bit more to help you adequately. Ever heard of potential energy ? Can you connect rotation and velocity of center of mass with each other ?
