In a science museum, a 110kg brass pendulum bob swings at the end of a 13.2m -long wire. The pendulum is started at exactly 8:00 a.m. every morning by pulling it 1.7m to the side and releasing it. Because of its compact shape and smooth surface, the pendulum's damping constant is only 0.010 rm kg/s. At exactly 12:00 noon, how many oscillations will the pendulum have completed? And what is its amplitude?

Rank each pendulum on the basis of the maximum kinetic energy it attains after release. Rank from largest to smallest. To rank items as equivalent, overlap them.

A pendulum is made by tying a 420g ball to a 51 cm long string. The pendulum is pulled 25 degrees to one side, then released.(a) what is the ball's speed at the lowest point of its trajectory?(b) To what angle does the pendulum swing on the other side?

A simple pendulum consisting of a bob of mass m attached to a string of length L wings with a period T.A. If the mass of the bob is reduced by half, what will the new period of oscillation be?a.
