A pendulum of mass m= 0.9 kg and length l=1 m is hanging from the ceiling. The massless string of the pendulum is attached at point P. The bob of the pendulum is a uniform shell (very thin hollow sphere) of radius r=0.4 m, and the length l of the pendulum is measured from the center of the bob. A spring with spring constant k= 12 N/m is attached to the bob (center). The spring is relaxed when the bob is at its lowest point (θ=0). In this problem, we can use the smallangle approximation sinθ≃θ and cosθ≃1. Note that the direction of the spring force on the pendulum is horizontal to a very good approximation for small angles θ. (See figure)
