    Really Stuck here i've got the period but after that like i said i'm stuck

    A simple pendulum having a length of 1.53 m and a mass of 6.74 kg is given an initial speed of 1.36 m/s at its equilibrium position. Assume it undergoes simple harmonic motion.
    (a) Determine its period.
    2.48 s
    (b) Determine its maximum angular displacement.
