At time t , the angle between the pendulum and a vertical line is θ ( t ). It is known that θ ( t ) satisﬁes the diﬀerential equation θ 00 ( t ) =sin( θ ( t )) . 1. This equation is too hard to solve. Use linearization to approximate the right hand side when θ ( t ) is very small. 2. Replace the right hand side with the linear approximation you found. Show that θ ( t ) = C cos( t ) is a solution to the new diﬀerential equation, where C is a constant. 2...
