8.75: First consider the motion after the collision. The combined object has mass = tot m 25.0 kg. Apply a F m = Σ to the object at the top of the circular loop, where the object has speed 3 v . R v m mg T 2 3 = + The minimum speed 3 v for the object not to fall out of the circle is given by setting 0 = T . This gives , 3 Rg v = where m. 3.50 = R Next, use conservation of energy with point 2 at the bottom of the loop and point 3 at the top of the loop. Take
