16. We use Eq. 8-18, representing the conservation of mechanical energy. The reference position for computing U is the lowest point of the swing; it is also regarded as the “final” position in our calculations. (a) In the solution to problem 7, we found U = mgL (1 – cos θ ) at the position shown in Fig. 8-34 (which we consider to be the initial position). Thus, we have
