A uniform sphere of mass m and radius r is set free from the top edge of a semicircle halfpipe with radius R. If R > r, what is the time-dependent velocity equation v(t) for the sphere in terms of t, m, r, R and g ignoring any effects of friction?
Could anybody help me derive the differential equations?
