Problem 14-81 The bob of mass M of a pendulum is fired from rest at position A by a spring which has a stiffness k and is compressed a distance δ . Determine the speed of the bob and the tension in the cord when the bob is at positions B and C . Point B is located on the path where the radius of curvature is still
