A solid sphere of uniform density starts from rest and rolls without slipping a distance of d = 4.4 m down a θ = 22°incline. The sphere has a mass  M = 4.3 kg and a radius R = 0.28 m.

1)Of the total kinetic energy of the sphere, what fraction is translational?

KE tran/KEtotal =

2)What is the translational kinetic energy of the sphere when it reaches the bottom of the incline?

KE tran =

3)What is the translational speed of the sphere as it reaches the bottom of the ramp?

v =

4)Now let's change the problem a little.

Suppose now that there is no frictional force between the sphere and the incline. Now, what is the translational kinetic energy of the sphere at the bottom of the incline?
