I thought of this question the other day, and I was unable to solve it. A Google search has not helped, so I thought I might post it here.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A point mass hangs from a rod of length "l" from the center of a pendulum. The only forces acting upon the point mass are the force of gravity and the force of constraint (keeping it distance "l" from the center). Is there a function that describes the motion of the point mass?
