i know that k= 0.5mv2 + 0.5 I w2

K=1/2 mv2 (1+(I/mr2)

but i am still getting he wrong answer because i convert I to miri2 so therefore it cancels with the denominator and k = 1/2mv2 but that is wrong. i am stuck

**drwls**, Thursday, November 5, 2009 at 2:05pmI for a solid disc is (1/2) m r^2

Try it with that.

If you use I = m r^2 (which would be correct for a hoop), you would get

total KE = mv^2, not(1/2) m v^2
