(SIMPLE DRAWING)


The distance from A to B si 20 centimeters. Let d(t) be the horizontal distance from the pendulum to the center line at time t seconds (with distances to the right of the line measured by positive numbers and distances to the left by negative ones.) Assume that the pendulum is on the center line at time t= 0 adn moving to the right. Assume that the motion of the pendulum is simple and harmonic. Find the rule of d(t).
