A penny rests on top of a bowling ball. You give the bowling ball a slight bump and the penny slides off the frictionless, spherical surface as shown below. At what angle θ does the penny leave the surface of the bowling ball? (Hint: When the penny leaves the surface, the normal force is zero.) Assume the friction between the penny and the bowling ball is negligible.
