**1. Homework Statement**

a small ball slides , with constant speed (a

_{[tex]\theta[/tex]}tangential acceleration = 0) , around a horizontal circle at height h inside a firctionless, hemispherical bowl of radius R.

derive a formula for the balls angular velocity [tex]\omega[/tex] in terms of the radius of the radius of the bowl R, the height of the ball above the bottom of the bowl h and g

**2. Homework Equations**

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

arent R and h constantly changing here (due to gravity the ball is sliding lower and lower in the bowl)

and if they are changing wouldnt the ball have a tangential acceleration because the angular acceleration is getting bigger and bigger?
