(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

One uses the approximation sin(x) = x to calculate the oscillation period of a simple gravity pendulum. Which is the maximal angle of deﬂection (in degree) such that this approximation is accurate to a) 10%, b) 1%, c) 0.1%. You can estimate the accuracy by using the next nonvanishing term of the Taylor series
