Kinetic Energy of a Simple Pendulum System#

The figure below shows a simple pendulum. The length of the string is \(l\) and the bob has mass \(m_1\).

Figure of a pendulum. The angle between the displaced string of the pendulum and the vertical axis is theta.

Question Text#

If the mass is released from rest when \(\theta = {{ params.theta }}^{\circ}\), at which values of \(\theta\) does the mass have half of its maximum kinetic energy?

Answer Section#

Please enter in a numeric value in degrees.
