A constant horizontal force F_{app}of magnitude 10N is applied to a wheel of mass 10kg and radius .3m. The wheel rolls smoothly on the horizontal surface, and the acceleration of its center of mass has magnitude .6 m/s^{2}(a) In unit-vector notation, what is the frictional force on the wheel? (b) what is the rotational inertia of the wheel about the rotation axis through its center of mass?

2. Relevant equations

I don't even know

3. The attempt at a solution

I spent more than an hour on this and I could not figure it out. Needless to say I am extremely frustrated because it seems as though my teacher has not taught us anything we need to know to solve this, so I don't think any of my work is worth typing in this space.
