A Hollow Sphere, a Solid Sphere, a Disc and a Ring All Having Same Mass and Radius Are Rolled Down on an Inclined Plane. - Physics
One Line Answer
A hollow sphere, a solid sphere, a disc and a ring all having same mass and radius are rolled down on an inclined plane. If no slipping takes place, which one will take the smallest time to cover a given length?
The body with the smallest moment of inertia will roll down taking the smallest time. Here, the solid sphere has the lowest moment of inertia among all the other bodies. So, it will roll down taking the least time.
