When the pendulum bob reaches the mean position, the net force acting on it is zero. Why then does it swing past the mean position?
I have no idea.. i know that it has momentum ..but...
this is the inertial motion
Doesn't that mean it's at rest? I thought it had something to do with gravity pulling on the object? Because the bob is still moving so technically it's not at rest right?
