Which has the greater kinetic energy: a bowling ball that slides down the lane without rolloing, or one of the exact same mass that moves at the same translational speed but rolls without slipping?

The rolling ball has additional rotational kinetic energy. It makes the total kinetic energy 0.6 M V^2 instead of 0.5 M V^2.
