Default dynamics problem


I have a problem involving the coriolis and gravitational forces on a
rotating coordinate system:

A free particle of mass m is release from a state of rest on a
rotating, sloping, rigid plane. The angular rotation rate about a
vertical axis is omega and the angle formed by the plane with the
horizontal is theta. Friction and centrifugal forces are negligible.
What is the maximum speed acquired by the particle, and what is its
maximum downhill displacement?

- I am pretty sure the answers are derived symbolically by determining
when the coriolis force comes into balance with the component of the
gravitational force down the slope.

Any insight would be much appreciated....
