1) When a pendulum 0.5m long swings back and forth, its angular displacement Ɵ from rest position, in radians is given by Ɵ=1/4sin((pi/2)t), where t is the time, in seconds. At what time(s) during the first 4 s is the pendulum displaced 1 cm vertically above its rest position? (assume the pendulum is at its rest position at 0).
2) the current in a household appliance varies according to the equation A=5sin120pit, where A is the current in amperes, and t is the time, in seconds. at what rate is hte current changing at t=1s?
The Attempt at a Solution
1) i'm not sure how to approach/solve this question
2) i got 0, can anyone confirm?
