Hi, so I'm kinda stuck on this problem, any advise on any part of this problem is appreciated. So the problem states that a ball having mass m is connected to a string with length L and forms a simple pendulum. A wind of constant horizontal F is blowing, the questions asks us to show that the maximum height is H=2L/(1+(mg/F)^2) then it asks us to determine the equilibrium height of ball/ show formula. I tried solving the questions and for the first one, i'm missing the power and for the second one, I get H=L. I'm not sure if they're right, and if they're wrong can someone help? thanks(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
