A 40 kg child sits in a swing suspended with 2.5 m long ropes. The swing is held aside so that the ropes make an angle of 15 degrees with the vertical. Use the conservation of mechanical energy to determine the speed the child will have at the bottom of the arc when she is let...

**Science-Pendulum**

The four parts in which I had to go through this investigation was: Part 1: Practice Part 2: Does mass affect the swing rate of a pendulum? Part 3:Does Arc length affect the swing rate of a pendulum? Part 4:Does Length affect the swing rate of a pendulum. It asks why was it ...

The length of time that it takes for a pendulum to make one complete swing depends on the length of the pendulum. The time in seconds, T, is related to the length in metres, L, through the equation T=2π√ L/9.8 Write this equation in function notation. (1 mark) State...

**Pre-Calculus **

The Period T, in seconds, of a pendulum depends on the distance, L, in meters, between the pivot and the pendulum's centre of mass. If the initial swing angle is relatively small, the period is given by the radical function T=2pi(sqrtL/g) where g represents acceleration due to...

A tire swing is suspended from a tree. The swings height (in feet) above the ground is modeled by the equation, h = -12cos(x) + 15. (x is the angle measured in degrees). What is the height of the swing, when the angle is 60 degrees?

At a low point of its swing, a pendulum bob with a mass of 0.20kg has a velocity of 4.0m/s. (a) What is its kinetic energy? (b) How high will the bob swing above the low point before reversing direction?

You have a 0.35 long pendulum attached to the roof inside your car. Your car is travelling at a speed of 1.0 m/s when it hits a concrete wall and stops immediately. If the pendulum is free to swing, to what maximum angle to the vertical does the pendulum swing upon impact?
