We are required to compare the changes in kinetic energy as the pendulum moves across positions.
Law of conservation of energy:
, where Wnc is the work done by non-conservative forces such as friction.
The kinetic energy of the pendulum bob in figure 15-1 increases the most between locations
a. A and B.
