A block of ice of mass m rests on the very top of a smooth metal hemishpere. The tiniest nudge sends it sliding down the side of the hemisphere. The acceleration of gravity is g and the radius of the hemisphere is R. At what angle, with respect to the vertical, does the block fly off the surface of the hemisphere?
