    By striking a pool ball below its mid-line, you can cause it to translate to the right while rotating counterclockwise (slipping). Assume a coefficient of friction equal ot 0.65, a diameter of 7 cm, a mass of 0.11 kg, a velocity of 5 m/sec and a spinn of 30 rad/sec. How far will the ball travel before it translations to pure rolling (no slip)?
