I would guess almost the same way as you go about calculating acceleration, except that you need to calculate rotational acceleration as well. As your object rolls faster and faster down a hill, it spins faster and faster and might reach a limit in its RPM. You can use the T = alpha * I, where T is torque, alpha is angular acceleration and I is its inertia.
