How to handle rotations with Rolling without Slipping

This is a classic rotations problem, where a ball rolls down a hill without any slipping. Because both linear and rotational motions happen simultaneously, we need to solve both motions simultaneously with F = ma and t = I(alpha). This would be true for any sort of 'rolling without slipping' problem, as well. Check it out!
