tThe bob of a pendulum swings through a circular arc of constant radius. At what point of the swing does the cord holding the bob exert the greatest entripetal force on it?

  • science -

    You are talking about what is called a conical pendulum. With the bob going in a circle, the centripetal force and the cord tension are constant in magnitude, but merely change direction.
