# The bob of a simple pendulum of length 1 m has mass 100g and a speed of 1.4 m/s at the lowest point in its path. Find the tension in the string at this moment.

According to the question;

Length of pendulum (l) = 1 m;

Mass of pendulum (m) = 100g =

Velocity at lowest point (v) = 1.4 m/s.

Now;

The Tension in the string is equal to the sum of force in the circular path (centripetal force) and gravitational force..

Tension T = Centripetal force + gravitational force.

T = + mg

T = + 0.1 × 9.8.

(Length of string(l) = radius of circle in which bob of pendulum moves (r))

T = 0.196 + 0.98

T = 1.176 N.

The tension in the string is 1.176 N.
