Homework Help: Momentum of pendulum at its lowest point

  1. Aug 8, 2012 #1
    A pendulum of length L swings from rest at a starting angle of θ from the vertical. Assume the mass is concentrated at the end of the pendulum; find its momentum at its lowest point.

    Please help, thx:)

    Welcome to PF;
    The idea is that you have a go to show us where you get stuck and then we can help.

    From what you wrote I cannot tell what to help you with exactly - do you know what a pendulum is? What momentum is? Kinetic energy? Gravitational potential energy? Do you know the expressions for these?
