# Shouldn't the ball reach the top?

A small body A starts sliding from the height $$h$$ down an inclined groove passing into a half-circle of radius $$\dfrac h2$$ as shown in figure. Assuming the friction to be negligible, find the velocity of the body at the highest point of its trajectory (after breaking off the groove). If $$h=2.7\text{ m}$$ , what is the velocity (in $$\text{m/s}$$?

Note: Motion of the body is along the inner side of the circular track.
