Cylinder on an incline

  1. Sep 5, 2006 #1
    A cylinder rolling down an incline.


    Moment of Interia is I
    And the cylinders mass is m
    Velocity is: v
    And cylinder radius: r

    Angel on the incline: y

    How do i calculate the cylinders angular acceleration?

    ma=mg*[tex]\\siny[/tex]

    a=g*[tex]\\siny[/tex]

    angular acceleration:[tex]\alpha[/tex]=a/r

    Im i right?
