Also, I need to find out the velocity of the COM as the sphere turns by an angle (say, theta).

Given the the moment of inertia of the sphere about an axis passing through its COM and perpendicular to the plane of motion is mr

^{2}/3.

It's very tricky to me when it's NOT given that the sphere rolls without sliding (most problems related to unsymmetrical bodies have this mentioned).
