A glass marble of mass m is moving in a horizontal circle round the inside surface of a smooth hemisperical bowl o fradius r. The centre of the circle is at a distance r/2 below the centre of the bowl. State a suitable model for the marble and hence find the magnitude of the reaction between the marble and the bowl and the speed of the marble.

NO IDEA?!

Maybe do it like a conical pendulum? Instead of tension in the string, reaction form the bowl? This stumped me and I just left it...

what a strange question.. not sure if the reaction is then perpendicular to the bowl which just wouldn't make sense.. god so don't need this night before the bloody exam!

First off: cos a = (r/2 / r) = Â½
a = 60Â°

^ vertically: Rcos60 = mg
Â½R = mg
R = 2mg

< horizontally: mvÂ²/rsin60 = Rsin60

divide < by ^: Rsin60/Rcos60 = mvÂ²/mgrsin60

tan60 = vÂ²/(√3/2)gr
vÂ² = (√3√3)gr/2
vÂ² = 3gr/2
v = √(3gr/2)
v = √Â¼√(6gr)

v = 2√(6gr)

Yay! Can't believe I finally got that!
