I solved the following problem and got 48.2o as the answer, but the provided answer is 60o. Which is correct?

A small marble resting on the top of a hemisphere starts to roll down, without slipping. At what angle will the marble become airborne?

The normal force for circular motion is from normal component of gravitation force, and it should be larger than the centripetal force
i.e. N= mg cos\theta\ge m \frac{v^2}{R}, where R is the radius.
Since it starts to roll down from the top,
the kinetic energy is coming from changes of potential energy
\frac{1}{2}mv^2=mgR(1-cos\theta)
So \frac{v^2}{R}=2mg(1-cos\theta)\le mg cos\theta
2mg\le3mg cos\theta
The result is \theta\le cos^{-1}\frac{2}{3}

Really confirm for the answer is the angle less than and equal arccos (2/3)

I can not participate now in discussion - there is no free time. But I will be released - I will necessarily write that I think on this question.
