Understanding KE and PE of a pendulum


Please answer the questions below.

Explore the energy (KE and PE) graph and note down your observations.

In the energy (KE and PE) graph, which colour represents KE and which colour represents PE?

Find the relationship between the position of the bob and its kinetic and potential energy.

Note down the position/s of the bob where its KE and PE are maximum and minimum.


These notes will appear on every page in this lesson so feel free to put anything here you'd like to keep track of.
