Homework Statement


Is there an actual formula for the acceleration of a simple pendulum.
I know that the distance is angular displacement=angular amplitudesin(wt+phase constant) and the velocity is angular velocity= Length of String* w*angular amplitude cos(wt+phase constant)

Hi there,

I am sure you can even find out yourself. You just need to apply Newton's second law. With simple calculations, you can find out the acceleration of a simple pendulum.

Damn,

Now that's great help. I was going to make a little drawing like that. But I guess you have the answer right there.

Cheers
