A solid disk and ring of the same mass and radius start from rest at the top of an incline. both of them start from the same vertical height of 0.5m and roll down an incline.
Which of these reach the bottom first? Give reason.
My quess was that the solid disk would reach the bottom first because it is more arrow dynamic(??). could you tell me if that is right.
Find the speed of the disk when it reaches the bottom of the incline.
what equation do I use and how do I set it up.

The objects are rolling down the incline without sliding due to friction that is providing necessary torque about the axis of rotation. ...
