K.C.S.E Physics Q & A - MODEL 2011PP1QN15
Figure 10 shows a simple pendulum of length 80cm. The pendulum bob whose mass is 50g oscillates between points A and B, through its rest position C. A and B are both 10cm higher than C
(a) (i) Indicate with an arrow, on the path ACB, the direction of the greatest velocity of the bob as it moves from A to B.
(ii) State the form of energy possessed by the pendulum bob at point A.
(i) the velocity of the bob at point C,
(ii) the tension in the string as the bob passes point C.(take acceleration due to gravity g = 10 m/s2)
(c) After some time, the pendulum comes to rest at point C. State what happens to the energy it initially possessed.
