**drwls**, Saturday, November 5, 2011 at 6:03amThe initial kinetic energy before it starts climbing is

KEmax = (1/2)MV^2 + (1/2)I*w^2

where I = M R^2 and w = V/R.

I is the moment of intertia, R is the radius, V is the initial velocity and and w is the initial angular velocity.

Combining terms,

KEmax = M V^2.

It stops rolling when

KEmax = M g h,

the potential energy increase.

h = V^2/g. The ramp angle, hoop mass and radius do not matter.
