Is the velocity of a pendulum at the height of its swing 0?

  1. Oct 2, 2011 #1
    I would think that at a pendulum's highest point the velocity would be 0. Am I wrong in my assumption?

    If it is a simple pendulum, and by "highest point" you mean farthest deflection, then your belief is correct.

    What makes you think it isn't?

    Need more deets.
