Problem 6.6: A ball in a bowl

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

A mass of 2 kg is in a rather large bowl and moves as depicted in the animation (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds). There is no friction between the mass and the bowl, so the mass slides along the surface of the bowl (it does not roll at all). Determine the velocity of the mass at the bottom of the bowl. Restart.
