A disk and a box of equal mass are released from the top of two inclines both of which are a height h above the ground and make an angle θ to the horizontal. Let the radius of the disk be R. How much sooner does the box reach the bottom of the incline than the disk?

Express your answer in terms of some or all of the variables m, h, theta, and R, as well as the acceleration due to gravity g.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I am completely stumped. Please advice me on how to do this problem.

Thanks a ton for the help and advice!!
