Wink What is the acceleration of the center of mass of the roll of paper?

A force F is a applied to a cylindrical roll of paper of radius R and mass M by pulling on the paper**. The acceleration of the center of mass of the roll of paper (when it rolls without slipping) is what?

**The force F is parallel to the floor and towards the right when looking down on the figure on paper. Also, it is on the top of the cylinder.
