A small ball (mass 0.1 kg) rolls around on the inside of a
funnel (cone), in a horizontal circle of radius R = 0.1 m. The ball
experiences negligible rolling friction and is traveling at
constant speed v. If the inside surface of the funnel makes an
angle of 45° to the horizontal (or vertical), and you assume g = 10
m/s2, what is the speed v of the ball? (Hint: think of the role of
the normal force by the funnel on the ball.)
