**Steve**, Thursday, November 22, 2012 at 7:08pmno way to know. I assume the swing is not dragging on the ground when just hanging.

However, assuming the swing chain is x feet long (x < 12), then the swing is hanging 12-x feet off the ground when at rest.

So, for our problem, the swing at 30° is

12-x + x(1-cos30°) feet off the ground.
