•A pendulum of mass of 600g is dropped from a height of 30cm.

•Calculate the GPE it had (g = 9.81)

•Tell me how much KE it will have at the bottom of its swing (assuming no air resistance)

•Assuming all the GPE is transferred to KE, what is the maximum velocity reached?

  1. GPE = m * g * h = .6 * 9.81 * .3 J

    KE = GPE

    v = √(2 g h) m/s
