Rotation of Rigid Bodies


To test which variables depend on the linear acceleration of a rigid body rolling on an incline,

To test that a rigid body of the same structural shape rolling on an inclined plane, for example, the linear acceleration of the cylinder does not depend on its mass and radius.

To test that the acceleration of an object rolling on an incline depends on its structural shape.
