O B J E C T I V E The objective of this lab is to calculate and measure the velocity of projectiles rolling from an incline using two different methods (motion equations and conservation of energy). 2. T H E O R E T I C A L BACKG R O U N D Rolling motion combines linear motion with rotational motion. So kinetic energy of a rolling element includes both: linear kinetic energy as well as rotational kinetic energy. 1. K linear = 1/2mv 2 2. K rotational = 1/2Iw 2 3.
