How fast is the pumpkin moving at the bottom if theta = 30 degrees, L = 5 m, g = 9.8 m/s^2, m = 10 kg.//<![CDATA[ aax_getad_mpb({ "slot_uuid":"f485bc30-20f5-4c34-b261-5f2d6f6142cb" }); //]]>

L is the length of the string holding the pumpkin. M is the mass of the pumpkin. It's like a pendulum, the pumpkin is positioned at 30 degrees from the vertical and let go. Assume no air resistance/friction.
