Question

A simple pendulum with a length of 2.73 m and a mass of 6.54
kg is given an initial speed of 1.36 m/s at its equilibrium
position.

(a) Assuming it undergoes simple harmonic motion, determine
its period.

s

(b) Determine its total energy.

J

(c) Determine its maximum angular displacement. (For large v,
and/or small l, the small angle approximation may not be good
enough here.)

Answer #1

The length of a simple pendulum is 0.85 m and the mass of the
particle (the "bob") at the end of the cable is 0.26 kg. The
pendulum is pulled away from its equilibrium position by an angle
of 7.75° and released from rest. Assume that friction can be
neglected and that the resulting oscillatory motion is simple
harmonic motion.

rad/s
(b) Using the position of the bob at its lowest...

increase.
(b) The frequency of the pendulum does not depend on the
acceleration due to gravity.
(c) If the length of the...

pendulum of mass m= 0.8 kg and length l=1 m is hanging
from the ceiling. The massless string of the pendulum is attached
at point P. The bob of the pendulum is a uniform shell (very thin
hollow sphere) of radius r=0.4 m, and the length l of the pendulum
is measured from the center of the bob. A spring with spring
constant k= 7 N/m is attached to the bob (center). The spring is
relaxed when the bob is...
