Homework Help: college physics

Posted by Mary on Thursday, November 5, 2009 at 12:56pm.

A 2.0 kg disc rolls without slipping on a horizontal surface, so that its center of mass has a constant linear speed of 6.0 m/s. What is the total kinetic energy of the disc?

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
