  Flying Puck Consider a small frictionless puck perched at the top of a fixed2.sphere of radius R. If the puck is given a tiny nudge so that it begins to slide down,through what vertical height will it descend before it leaves the surface of the sphere?Hint: Use conservation of energy to find the puck's speed as a function of its height,then use Newton's second law to find the normal force of the sphere on the puck. Atwhat value of this normal force does the puck leave the sphere?
