The 2-kg pendulum bob moves in the vertical plane with a velocity of 6 m>s when u = 0. Determine the angle u where the tension in the cord becomes zero.

Problem 13-81

The 2-kg pendulum bob moves in the vertical plane with a velocity of 6 m/s when = 0°. Determine the angle where the tension in the cord becomes zero.

Step by step solution

Step 1 of 3

The pendulum has a mass of 2kg.

The pendulum moves in the vertical plane with a velocity of when

The angle where the tension in the cord becomes zero is to be determined.
