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

Maybe you could start by writing an equation that links angle traversed, amplitude, time period and time elapsed.
