Material point and curve wedge

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I think that the image is clear.
There isn’t friction, not the material point with wedge, not the wedge with the floor.

At time t=0 the material point start to move, I need to find the final speed of the two objects at time [itex]t\rightarrow\infty[/itex].

2. Relevant equations

I have used conservation of energy and momentum.

3. The attempt at a solution

So I have two equation:
[itex]\frac{1}{2}m{v_m}^2+\frac{1}{2}M{v_M}^2 = mgR[/itex]

[itex]m{v_m}+M{v_M}=0[/itex]

And the solution is [itex]{v_m}=\sqrt{\frac{mgR}{\frac{1}{2}m+\frac{1}{2}\frac{m^2}{M}}}[/itex]

Am I wrong?
