A uniform solid sphere rolls down an incline.
(a) What must be the incline angle if the linear acceleration of the center of the sphere is to have a magnitude of 0.20g?

(b) If a frictionless block were to slide down the incline at that angle, would its acceleration magnitude be more, less than, or equal to 0.20g?
