Kinetic energy
and velocity
. Set m to 1.0 kg, L to 1.3 m, g to 1.0 m/s2, and 0 to
-40 degrees.
Question: How is potential energy converted to kinetic energy?
1. Observe: Select the BAR CHART tab, and check that Show numerical values is on.
A. What is the height of the pendulum?
B. What is the potential energy of the pendulum?
C. What is the kinetic energy of the pendulum?
2. Observe: Click Play, and then click Pause when the pendulum is at the bottom of its swing.
A. What is the approximate height of the pendulum now?
B. What is the potential energy of the pendulum?
C. What is the kinetic energy of the pendulum?
3. Calculate: The formula for kinetic energy is as follows:
KE = - my2
Based on this formula, what is the velocity (v) of the pendulum at the bottom of its swing?
Show your work.
Velocity =
