Homework Help: Simple Pendulum Help

  1. Mar 21, 2010 #1
    in this simple pendulum there are 3 points A,B,C , at point A the displacement is 0 , at point B the displacement is maximum and at point C what is the displacement??
    also
    When the Pendulum starts from maximum Displacement i.e point B , the velocity at point B would be 0, and at point A the velocity would be maximum , what would be the displacement at point C ?
    also
    When the pendulum is at point B (maximum displacement) will the acceleration is maximum ??

    can anyone explain its graphical representation ?
    Velocity vs time, Acceleration vs time.

    Hi XuFyaN! :wink:

    What do you think is the equation of motion (for small angles)? :smile:
