A block of a certain material begins to slide on an inclined plane when the plane is inclined to an angle of 14.57°. If a solid cyclinder is fashioned from the same material, what will be the maximum angle at which it will roll without slipping on the plane?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I really have no idea where to start on this problem since the only given is the angle. I know that the moment of inertia of a cylinder is (1/2)MR^2 if thats needed at all. Any hints?
