Question

A sphere is released from rest at the top of an inclined plane. What is the speed of the sphere at a distance 6.0 m below its starting point. Assume that the sphere rolls without slipping.

Answer #1

Initial Kinetic Energy will be 0 since it was started from rest. Let mass of sphere be "m" and of radius "r", its final speed be "v" anf let it be initially at a height "h" from the ground.

Then Using Conservation of Energy

Initial Total Energy= Final Total Energy

(Since it rolls without slipping thus will have rotational kinetic energy also denoted above as R.K.E)

using the known formulas for energy,

............................**(1)**

where I= Moment of inertia of solid sphere, I=
2mr^{2}/5

and = angular velocity of sphere

then using above values in equation 1, we get

**(ANS)**

A sphere is released from the top of a rough inclined plane. The
friction is sufficient so that the sphere rolls without slipping.
Mass of the sphere is M and radius is R. The height of the center
of the sphere from ground is h. Find the speed of the center of the
sphere as it reaches the bottom of the sphere.

A sphere of mass M, radius r, and rotational inertia I is
released from rest at the top of an inclined plane of height h as
shown above. (diagram not shown)
If the plane has friction so that the sphere rolls without
slipping, what is the speed vcm of the center of mass at the bottom
of the incline?

An 6.90-cm-diameter, 360 g solid sphere is released from rest at
the top of a 1.80-m-long, 20.0 ∘ incline. It rolls, without
slipping, to the bottom. What is the sphere's angular velocity at
the bottom of the incline? What fraction of its kinetic energy is
rotational?

An 8.20 cm-diameter, 390g solid sphere is released from rest at
the top of a 2.00m long, 19.0 degree incline. It rolls, without
slipping, to the bottom.
1) What is the sphere's angular velocity at the bottom of the
incline?
2) What fraction of its kinetic energy is rotational?

An 8.50-cm-diameter, 360 g solid sphere is released from rest at
the top of a 1.90-m-long, 15.0 ∘ incline. It rolls, without
slipping, to the bottom.
Part A
What is the sphere's angular velocity at the bottom of the
incline?
Part B

A 320-N sphere 0.20 m in radius rolls without slipping 6.0 m
down a ramp that is inclined at 34° with the horizontal. What is
the angular speed of the sphere at the bottom of the slope if it
starts from rest?

A solid sphere is released from the top of a ramp that is at a
height
h1 = 2.25 m.
It rolls down the ramp without slipping. The bottom of the ramp
is at a height of
h2 = 1.7 m
above the floor. The edge of the ramp is a short horizontal
section from which the ball leaves to land on the floor. The
diameter of the ball is 0.19 m.
a) Through what horizontal distance d, in meters,...
