1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The balance wheel of an old fashioned watch oscillates with an angular amplitude π rad and period of 0.500 s. Find the maximum angular speed of the wheel.

2. Relevant equations
There are a lot of equations in this chapter and I don't even know where to start

3. The attempt at a solution
Like I said, I have no clue what I am doing
