Experiment 10: Gyroscope - Soup Can Race

Exploration: Two cans of different geometries are released from rest at the same time at the top of an inclined plane. Which can will reach the bottom first? Will they arrive at the same time? How much energy does the system contain? What is the moment of inertia of each can?
