Current Topic:
Calculating trajectory of ball rolling down slope and off launch ramp
Actually the point of the exercise seems to be understand that the nylon balls and steel balls should fall at about the same place and steel core nylon balls should go further.  This is because a ball with a heavy core will have a small "radius of gyration" and will roll down an incline faster than a homogeneous ball.
