Question

Two balls, one of radius R and mass M, the other of radius 2R and mass 8M, roll down an frictionless incline. They start together from rest at the top.

a) Which one will have more K.E.?

b) Which one will reach the bottom first or in other words which one has greater velocity?

(Hint: KR = ½ I ω2 and KT = ½ m v2 and v=rω and I=2/5 mr2 ; K.E. = KR + KT and K.E. = P.E.) Please show calculations for each part and clearly explain.

A Brunswick bowling ball with mass M= 7kg and radius R=0.15m
rolls from rest down a ramp without slipping. The initial height of
the incline is H= 2m. The moment of inertia of the ball is
I=(2/5)MR2
What is the total kinetic energy of the bowling ball at the
bottom of the incline?
684J
342J
235J
137J
If the speed of the bowling ball at the bottom of the incline is
V=5m/s, what is the rotational speed ω at the...

disk 1: Radius= R; Mass= 3M, Angle velocity= 2wo
Disk 2: Radius= 2R; Mass= M, Angle velocity= -wo
Disk 1 drops on to disk 2 and then spin together at the same
rate, wf
What is wf?

two putty balls, one of mass M and the other of mass 2M, collide
and stick together. just before the collision, the ball with mass
2m is moving at an angle theta, with respect to the +y direction
with speed V, and ball with mass M is moving in the +x direction
with speed 2V. (derive and expression using the coordinate system
provided, in terms of system parameters, for the KE of the combined
object after collision.?)

Two balls are placed, one above the other, and dropped from a
height of 1.05 m. The bottom ball has a mass which is 6 times the
mass of the top ball. They are dropped from rest. When the balls
strike the floor, they have a head on, elastic collision with one
another. (Assume that the bottom ball strikes the floor, instantly
reverses direction, and then collides with the top ball, which is
still travelling downward.) How high will the...

One model for a certain planet has a core of radius R
and mass M surrounded by an outer shell of inner radius
R, outer radius 2R, and mass 4M. If
M = 5.95 × 1024 kg and R = 2.57 ×
106 m, what is the gravitational acceleration of a
particle at points (a) R and
(b) 3R from the center of the planet?

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?

Problem 4
A hoop and a solid disk both with Mass (M=0.5 kg) and radius (R=
0.5 m) are placed at the top of an incline at height (h= 10.0 m).
The objects are released from rest and rolls down without
slipping.
a) The solid disk reaches to the bottom of the inclined plane
before the hoop. explain why?
b) Calculate the rotational inertia (moment of inertia) for the
hoop.
c) Calculate the rotational inertia (moment of inertia) for the...

An object (either solid sphere, hoop or solid disk) of Mass
M=10kg and radius R=4m is at the
bottom of an incline having inclination angle X=40 degrees
and base length X=15 meters, with an initial rotational
velocity omega(i)=2rad/s; it is subsequently
pulled up the the incline by some force F=15
(Newtons) such that at the top of the incline it
has a final rotational velocity omega(f)=7rad/s.
Determine: a) the linear velocity, b) rotational KE and c) total
work and work...

A hollow cylinder (hoop) of mass M and radius R starts rolling
without slipping (with negligible initial speed) from the top of an
inclined plane with angle theta. The cylinder is initially at a
height h from the bottom of the inclined plane. The coefficient of
friction is u. The moment of inertia of the hoop for the rolling
motion described is I= mR^2.
a) What is the magnitude of the net force and net torque acting
on the hoop?...
