Problem setup-Merry Go Round.10 ft...

Problem setup-Merry Go Round.10 ft radius,1 rev/sec (54 mph at perimeter) steel ball 8oz groove in flr straight from perimeter to center?

How much impulse force pushed in a short instant once, on a steel ball while resting at perimeter (A), and how long does it take to reach center(B)? No need to calc friction. The steel ball will start off fast and slow down due to the opposite centripetal force as the MGR is spinning. The goal is to find out how much force is just enough to get it to the center with just a little extra force left to hit.

2. How long does it take to reach the center (A -> B) to travel the 10 ft radius? You can imagine sitting at the perimeter of the MGR as it is spinning 1 rev/sec, you'd be experiencing a lot of outward force. Then you'd try to roll the steel ball to someone in the center of the MGR. The groove on the floor of the MGR keeps the ball in line as it rolls straight to the center. Would the ball get there before one revolution?
