you have to consider also the frictional force. What is SHM? –  Anthonny Oct 25 '11 at 16:23
    
SHM=Simple Harmonic Motion –  Jonathan Gleason Oct 25 '11 at 20:00
    
As mentioned in our FAQ, "vanilla" homework questions are not appropriate for this site. Nic has given you some nice hints so perhaps those will help you; otherwise, if you narrow this question down to the physical principle that is giving you trouble, it could be reopened. –  David Z Oct 25 '11 at 20:43

1 Answer 1

As this looks a lot like a homework question I'll give some brief hints.

  1. Consider which way the ball must be spinning.
  2. Will the magnitude of the horizontal velocity $v$ change?
  3. Whats the relationship between rotational velocity and linear velocity for a point on the circumference?
