## Question:

A 2.5kg solid homogenous ball is rolling without slipping at 3 m per second to the right on a level surface. The diameter of the ball is 80 cm. What is the total kinetic energy of the ball?.

## Total Kinetic Energy:

The total kinetic energy of a rolling body is given by the equation;

{eq}K = \dfrac{1}{2} M V_{cm}^2+ \dfrac{1}{2} I \omega^2 {/eq}

where, {eq}V_{cm} {/eq} is the velocity of the center of mass of the body, {eq}\omega {/eq} is the angular velocity about the axis of rotation and I is the moment of inertia about the same axis of rotation.
