**1. Homework Statement**

A 3kg ball moves at constant speed in a horizontal circle on the inside of a cone. The radius of the circle is 2m. Determine the magnitude of the normal force acting on the ball and the time required for the ball to complete exactly one circle. Assume that the surface of the cone is frictionless. Use [tex]\theta[/tex]= 60degrees. Hint: apply Newton's second law horizontally and vertically.
