Homework Help: physics

Posted by HELP!!!! on Saturday, April 23, 2011 at 4:13pm.

A Foucault pendulum is designed to demonstrate the effect of the Earth's rotation. A Foucault pendulum displayed in a museum is typically quite long, making the effect easier to see. Consider a Foucault pendulum of length 16 m with a 109-kg brass bob. It is set to swing with an amplitude of 3.1.
(a) What is the period of the pendulum?


(b) What is the maximum kinetic energy of the pendulum?


(c) What is the maximum speed of the pendulum?
