 P: 16 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What is the equation for the torque of a cylinder, a hollow cylinder, and a sphere rolling down an incline? 2. Relevant equations This is what I don't know 3. The attempt at a solution I have no idea where to start.
 HW Helper P: 6,213 Torque is the rate of change of angular momentum if angular momentum = Iω, that is torque then?
 P: 258 What is the equation for torque? Similarly to F = ma, the equation for torque is $$T$$ $$=$$ $$I$$$$\alpha$$
