From Exercise 167#8 of an old textbook A hemispherical bowl of inside radius 8.00 inches is level and is filled with water to a depth of 2.00 inches. Through what angle may it be tilted before the water spills? No answer was given at the back of the textbook since it's an even numbered problem but I'd say the answer should be 48.59°.
