Unformatted text preview: rotational inertia (about the center of mass), we find I com = 2 MhR 2 /r – MR 2 = MR 2 [2 g ( H – h )/ v 2 – 1] . Thus, using the β notation suggested in the problem, we find β = 2 g ( H – h )/ v 2 – 1. To proceed further, we need to find the center of mass speed v, which we do using the projectile motion equations of Chapter 4. With v o y = 0, Eq. 422 gives the timeofflight...
