A ball, of mass 0.15 Kg, is held on the inside of a smooth hemispherical bowl at a height 0.16 m above the base. It is then released. Assuming there is no friction, the acceleration due to gravity, g, is 10 m/s2 and the potential energy is zero at the base of the bowl - What is the maximum value of kinetic energy?
Maximum kinetic energy equals initial potential energy.
