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.

Torque is the rate of change of angular momentum

if angular momentum = Iω, that is torque then?
