An object is positioned at an initial angle on a frictionless spherical shell. It is then let go, and starts sliding on the shell.
In what final angle the object will break free from the shell? the solution should be in terms of the initial angle.

Solution Summary

2 pages solution includes step by step derivations, full explanations and a graph showing how to solve the problem.

A small block slides from rest from the top of a frictionless sphere of radius R. How far below the top of the sphere does the block lose contact with the sphere? The sphere does not move. Gravity is acting on the block.

An object of mass m starts from rest and slides a distance d down a frictionless incline of angle. While sliding, it contacts an unstressed spring of negligible mass as shown in Figure. The objectslides an additional distance x as it is brought momentarily to rest by compression of the spring (of force constant k). Find the in

A 350 roller coaster starts from rest at point A and slides down the frictionless loop, which is shown in the accompanying figure (see attachment)
How fast is this roller coaster moving at point B? v = ? m/s
How hard does it press against the track at point B? F = ? N

A block slides on a semicircular frictionless track. If it starts from rest at position (A), what is its speed at the point marked (B)? A picture of the block and slide is attached as a jpeg file. I believe the answer is 3.7 m/s. I need to see each step and formula to solve this question.

Find the Following:
A. What is the kinetic energy of the crate as it slides on the upper surface?
B. While the crate slides along the upper surface, how much gravitational potential energy does it have compared to what it would have on the lower surface?
C. What is the speed of the crate when it arrives at the lower sur

1. A 1.9-kg block slides down a frictionless ramp. The top of the ramp is 1.5 m above the ground; the bottom of the ramp is 0.25 m above the ground. The block leaves the ramp moving horizontally, and lands a horizontal distance d away. Find the distance d.
2. Suppose the ramp is not frictionless. Find the distance d for the c

A block of mass m = 2.00 kg is released from rest at h = 0.400 m from the surface of a table, at the top of a theta = 40.0 degrees incline as shown below. The frictionless incline is fixed on a table of height H = 2.00 m.
(a) Determine the acceleration of the block as it slides down the incli

Consider a small frictionless puck perched at the top of a fixed sphere of radius R. If the puck is given a tiny nudge so that is begins to slide down, through what vertical hight will it descend before it leaves the surface of the sphere?[Hint: Use conservation of energy to find the puck's speed as a function of its height, the

A small sphere with a charge of +2.53 mC is attached to a relaxed, horizontal spring whose force constant is 90.0 N/m. The spring extends along the x axis, and the sphere rests on a frictionless surface with its center at the origin. A point charge Q = -8.38 mC is now moved slowly from infinity to a point x = d > 0 on the x axis
