1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Consider 2 conical pendulums. The first one has mass M and length L and the second has mass 4M and Length 4L. For both parts the angle theta is 33 degrees. The ratio of the tangential speeds of the two circular motions V2/V1 is? 2. Relevant equations I know that tan(theta) = V^2/rg. I rearranged the equation to get V = square root of [gtan(theta)/r], where r = Lsin(theta). I keep getting the ratio 1/2, but it's wrong. Can someone please point out my mistake? 3. The attempt at a solution Thanks!
