## Homework Statement

A toy car has a total mass of 50 g, and rolls on freely spinning wheels, each of which can be modeled as a uniform disk of mass 1 g, and radius 2mm. What is the acceleration, a, of this toy car when it rolls without slipping down a ramp tilted at an angle of 20 degrees to the horizontal? By what factor is the toy car faster or slower than a frictionless block of the same total mass, ie what is a_car/a_frictionless?

## Homework Equations

F=ma

velocity_center of mass=wr (w is angular velocity, r is radius)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't know how to start this....how do you find the acceleration?
