Question: A hollow thin shelled ball and a solid ball of equal

A hollow, thin-shelled ball and a solid ball of equal mass are rolled up an inclined plane (without slipping) with both balls having the same initial velocity at the bottom of the plane.
(a) Which ball rolls higher on the incline before coming to rest?
(b) Do the radii of the balls make a difference?
(c) After stopping, the balls roll back down the incline. By the conservation of energy, both balls should have the same speed when reaching the bottom of the incline. Show this explicitly.
