Problem: A solid uniform cylinder (I = 1/2 MR2) with mass 2.00 kg and radius 0.120 m is released from rest at the top of a ramp that is inclined at 36.9° above the horizontal. The length of the ramp is 1.80 m. What is the magnitude of the static friction force required for the cylinder to roll without slipping?
