Two masses, m1=750g and m2=500g, act as two pendulums with length L=2.0m. At t=0, they are released without an initial velocity, the former at -10° and the latter at 20°.
At what angle will they collide?
sinθ=θ (small angle)
The Attempt at a Solution
I've found the frequency, which is 2.21 rad/s, and is identical for both masses. There are no phase constants as they are released from rest. So now I have:
Now I can't just set them equal to each other, the cosines will cancel out and I'll be left with -.175=.349...
Sorry for not using LaTex, I really don't get it =/
