Rotating Sphere going up an Incline

Physics
Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

A solid sphere rolls up an inclined plane of inclination angle 38 degrees. At the bottom of the incline, the center of mass of the sphere has a translational speed of 15 ft/s. How far (in feet) does the sphere roll up the plane (distance along the plane)?

The principle that can unite a rolling object's rotational and translational kinetic energy into one expression of total KE is called the Parallel Axis Theorem.  

P = ICM + Mh2

where

  • P represents the object's moment of inertia from any location, P
  • CM represents the object's moment of inertia about its center of mass
  • h represents the perpendicular distance from P to the center of mass
