Problem 2:

A point particle of mass m sits at rest on top of a frictionless hemisphere of mass M, which rests on a frictionless table, as shown. The particle is given a tiny kick and slides down the hemisphere. At what angle θ (measured from the top of the hemisphere) does the particle lose contact with the hemisphere?

Problem Of The Week

Problem 1

A mass M collides elastically with a stationary mass m. If M < m, then it is possible for M to bounce directly backwards. However, if M > m, then there is a maximum angle of deflection of M. Find this angle.
