Why would K(A) be 0?

  • anonymous
Yes, it 'released' without initial speed right?

isnt the initial speed 1.9 m/s?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No, that's the speed at B.

oh ok so you got the zero from A?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yup :)

but the book says tha answer is 0.18m but how would you get that answer?

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?
anonymous

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

@Jasminebunnies : Yes

  • anonymous
ohhh ok and the zero is put there because there is no mass?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Omg! (^ ^!) Which zero?
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol! the zero in your original equation that you said came from A, in front of mgh
anonymous
  • anonymous
That's because v=0 at highest point.
anonymous
  • anonymous
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.

  • anonymous
yes, ok! thank you! I understand now :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok ;)
