A simple pendulum consists of a mas M suspended by a thin string. The magnitude of the tension is T. The mass swings back and forth between +,- theta0.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need help identifying which of the following statements are correct. These are my answers, but I'm getting something wrong.

A)T=Mg at some angle between zero and theta0not correctCorrect

B)T is largest at the bottom (theta=0)

C)The vertical component of tension is constantCorrectCorrect

D)T is smallest when theta=+,- theta0

E)T depends on thetaCorrectNot correct

F)T equals Mg when theta=theta0

G)T is greater than Mg for theta =theta0Not correct

I would really appreciate some help with this problem, Thanks!!
