    Why would K(A) be 0?

    Yes, it 'released' without initial speed right?

    I got the same answer. I wrote the formula at the picture:\[h=\frac{v^2}{2g}\]

    when it comes to a pendulum does it not depend on the lenght of the string?

    ok, so you would use that formula, h=v^2/2g to get 0.18m?

    ohhh ok and the zero is put there because there is no mass?

    lol! the zero in your original equation that you said came from A, in front of mgh

    That's because v=0 at highest point.

    ohhh ok, is that because it has not been released at that point?

    Because by the time the pendulum is released, the velocity is zero. It start from rest.
