This is an example of momentum, which is a product of the object's mass and its velocity.

It is also harder to start a Bowling ball rolling than a ping-pong ball due to inertia, which is related only to the object's mass.

It is an example of inertia.

Is harder to stop a rolling bowling ball than a rolling ping pong ball when both are rolling at the same velocity Which is this an example of?

It is an example of momentum (sometimes called "inertia"). Velocity x mass. The bowling ball is much, much heavier. With both rolling at the same speed, the bowling ball is harder to stop because it has much more mass.

What is an example of an object having velocity but no acceleration?

A bowling ball rolling straight down the alley. The best example of velocity without acceleration would be a spaceship that is drifting in free space with no huge gravitating bodies[planets or stars nearby]. On earth or even on a very smooth bowling alley table there is always some frictional force that is contributing a corresponding deceleration however small. A bowling ball set in motion has acceleration during the initial push to get it moving. A skydiver who has opened his parachute, reached terminal velocity, and is now drifting down at constant speed, has velocity and no acceleration.

An 8 kilogram bowling ball is rolling in a s tight line toward you if a momentum is 16 kgm/sec how fast is it?

momentum = mass x velocity 16 = 8 x velocity velocity = 2 m/s

When a 5.0 kg bowling ball is rolling down the lane at 4.0 milliseconds . What is the kinetic energy of the bowling ball?

From the information provided it is impossible to answer the question. You require the velocity or speed of the ball and that is not measured in milliseconds - which a measure of time!
