A simple pendulum with length l and bob of mass m execute simple harmonic motion of small amplitude A. What would be the maximum tension in the string? posted Apr 3, 2018

The tension in the string at any position is given by the formula:
T = m x g x cos(a) + m x (v)Exp 2 / L
T = tension in the string
m= mass of the bob
a = the angle
v= velocity of the mass
L = lenght of the string
The maximum tension is achieved when a = 0, then cos (0) =1 and v = maximum velocity answer Apr 8, 2018 by anonymous
