Suppose that a simple pendulum consists of a 50.0 g bob at the end of a cord of negligible mass. The angle (theta) between the cord and the vertical is given by: (theta)=(0.01000rad)cos[(5rad/s)t ], where t is time. A. What is the pendulum's length? B. What is the pendulums maximum potential energy? C. What is the maximum tension in the cord?
The Attempt at a Solution
I got part a. Part b is throwin me off. I know how to find the maximum kinetic energy (KE=5rad/s x .392m x .1 rad) Im confused as to how to find potential, and even more lost on the tension
