called for in the Newton’s y laws for the ball, including the torques: Fx = −mg sin θ + Ff = −ma
Fy = −mg cos θ + Fn =
Furthermore, since the ball is rolling without slipping, we have that a = αR. So, we
have enough to solve this system of equations. Plugging in Ff = Iα/R = Ia/R2 to
the ﬁrst equation and solving for a gives
