1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The diagram shows a simple pendulum consisting of a mass M suspended by a thin, massless string. The magnitude of the tension is T. The mass swings back and forth between +/- θ0. Select all correct answers, e.g. B, AC, BCD. A) T is largest at the bottom (θ = 0). B) T is smallest when θ = +/- θ0. C) T equals Mg when θ = θ0. D) The vertical component of tension is constant. E) T = Mg at some angle between zero and θ0. F) T is greater than Mg when θ = θ0. 2. Relevant equations none 3. The attempt at a solution A) T would be equal to Mg so that means C is incorrect. But I'm not sure if this is where the T would be the largest. I think so, because anywhere else would have a vertical Tcosθ and a horizontal Tsinθ component. B) The same issue as A) D) The vertical component of T would change as θ changed because of the components right? So that's incorrect. E) I think the only place T=Mg is when θ=0, not at some angle between zero and θ0 F) Again, similar issue with A and B. Not sure where the max and min T are on a simple pendulum. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
