Suppose an object has both linear an angular motion. Let's consider the object a sphere. What we know: - The angular velocity and acceleration - The linear acceleration of the center of mass. - The the radius and the mass.

Can we find out: - The force component responsible for linear motion? - The force component responsible for angular motion/torque?

From angular acceleration, we can work backwards to get torque and then magnitude of the causing force, but can we find the direction i.e. the force vector as well?
