The maximum legal mass of a bowlng ball is actually 7.27 kg, but who's counting?
a) (1/2)MV ^2, of course
b) (1/2) I w^2
Use (2/5)M R^2 for the moment of inertia, I, and V/R for the angular velocity w.
You will get an expression in terms of M and V. R will cancel out.
c) Add the results of a and b
You should get (7/10)M*V^2
