Homework Help: PHYSICS 1

Posted by kelsey on Monday, October 20, 2008 at 4:28am.

When a pitcher throws a curve ball, the ball is given a fairly rapid spin. A 0.15 kg baseball with a radius of 3.7 cm is thrown with a linear speed of 41 m/s and an angular speed of 37 rad/s. Assume that the ball is a uniform, solid sphere.

(b) Calculate how much of its kinetic energy is rotational.

rotational is 1/2 I w^2 yes?
I of sphere is 2/5mr^2 yes?
so would it not be 1/2[(2/5 X .15 X .037^2) X (41/.037)^2]

please help!
