A simple pendulum is made from a bob of mass 0.04 kg suspended on alight string of length 1.4m. Keeping the string taut, the pendulum is pulled to one side until it has gained a height of 0.1m. calculate:
a. The total energy of the oscillation
(b) the amplitude of the resulting oscillation
(c) the period of the resulting oscillation
(d) the maximum velocity of the bob
(e) the maximum kinetic energy of the bob

(a) M g H, where H = 0.1 m, M = mass and g = acceleration of gravity
(b) If amplitude (A) is the maximum horizontal displacement, then
A = sqrt[1.4^2  1.3^2] = 0.52 m
(c) (2 pi)*sqrt(L/g)
where L = 1.4 m
(d) A*sqrt(g/L)
(e) M g H (same as maximum energy)
