A solid sphere of mass m and radius r rolls without slipping along the track shown in the Figure 10.83. It starts from rest with the lowest point of the sphere at height h above the bottom of the loop of radius R, much larger than r. What is the minimum value of h ( in terms of R) such that the sphere completes the loop?  What are the force components on the sphere at the point p if h=3R?
