Which object reaches the bottom first? θ θ 1: The solid cylinder 2: The hollow cylinder 3: They tie ( ) ( ) () () θ sin sin 1 sin 2 1 3 2 2 g a g a mr I g a hollow solid along = = + = 2 2 1 Solid mr I = 2 Hollow mr I =

Rolling and energy • As it rolls down, the object trades gravitational potential energy for kinetic energy • Friction does no work (acts over no distance), so all PE becomes KE •K E h a s t w o p a r t s : translational and rotational 2 4 3 2 4 1 2 2 1 2 2 2 2 2 1 2 2 1 2 2 1 r and mv mv mv KE v mr I I mv KE = + = = = + = ω Since PE is going into two forms, less goes into translation. The rolling object descends slower than a sliding object…
