Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yes, it 'released' without initial speed right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3No, that's the speed at B.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok so you got the zero from A?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but the book says tha answer is 0.18m but how would you get that answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I got the same answer. I wrote the formula at the picture:\[h=\frac{v^2}{2g}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when it comes to a pendulum does it not depend on the lenght of the string?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so you would use that formula, h=v^2/2g to get 0.18m?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhh ok and the zero is put there because there is no mass?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Omg! (^ ^!) Which zero?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol! the zero in your original equation that you said came from A, in front of mgh

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3That's because v=0 at highest point.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhh ok, is that because it has not been released at that point?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Because by the time the pendulum is released, the velocity is zero. It start from rest.
