Question description

A small mass m is released from rest at the top of a frictionless solid sphere. it slides down the sphere and eventually falls off. at what angle from the vertical does the mass lose contact with the sphere. (Hint: the normal force between the mass and the sphere drops to zero when the acceleration of the mass drops below V^2/r . you will need to combine the force equation and the energy conservation equation)
