lets say you have a pendulum swinging.

the length of string is 1m

it swings to the right so that the angle is 45deg.

i want to find difference in height from when it is at rest to its new position at 45deg.

How do i do this, trigonomically speaking i mean?

i mean, where is the right triangle???

2. Relevant equations

not exactly a homework prob, but related to everything in homework
