Consider a (frictionless) water slide for children. Ths slide is shown in red with the bottom of the slide being a quarter circle of radius R. The water line is shown in blue. P H R h A child starts from rest at the height H above the water (the highest point on the red slide.) At some point P the child will leave the surface.
