(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

a 2 kg pendulum of length 7 meters is moving at 1 m/s, calculate how high (h) the pendulum will rise; and the resultant angle.

2. Relevant equations

1/2mv2 = mgh

cos = Y/L

h = L ( 1- cos )

3. The attempt at a solution

1/2(2)(1)^2 = (2)(9.8) h

1 = 19.6h

1/19.6h

h = .051

just dont know how to go about gettign resultant angle
