A small circular object with mass m and radius r has a moment of inertia given by
I = cmr2.
The object rolls without slipping along the track shown in the figure. The track ends with a ramp of height R = 3.0 m that launches the object vertically. The object starts from a height H = 9.0 m. To what maximum height will it rise after leaving the ramp if c = 0.39?
I am really confused about this, please help thanks!

The figure is necessary

There is a table on top there is a string attached to a pulley and than a block is hanged down,which is also attached to the string!

Sorry ignore what I said here before...the ball is at the top and it slides to the right then it goes up a little which makes a curve which is distance R and the distance it slides from top to botton is H...hope you have an idea now!
