The maximum potential energy is at the top of each swing and is at its minimum at the bottom of the swing when it is perpendicular to a horizontal surface. The maximum kinetic energy is at the bottom of the swing, and is at its minimum at the top of each swing.
Please refer to the related link below for an illustration.
As the pendulum stops swinging, its maximum kinetic energy (the initial energy at the beginning of the swing) decreases, and its potential energy increases. Once the pendulum stops, it will have zero kinetic energy and maximum potential energy.
kinetic and potential at the top it had potential, as it falls it gains kinetic and loses potential, it has the most kinetic energy at the bottom. then when it rises to the other side it has potential again
When the bob of the pendulum while moving stops at one, its Kinetic energy changes completely into potential energy and when it starts its motion again, the potential energy changes to the kinetic energy
On a pendulum, the greatest potential energy is at the highest point of the swing on either side, and the greatest kinetic energy is at the bottom of the swing. On a roller coaster, the greatest potential energy is at the top of a hill, and the greatest kinetic energy is at the bottom of the hill.
The two energies turn in to static energy.
greetings.a pendulum has both kinetic and potential energy at one point.when the pendulum is at its highest point it has potential energy.it has kinetic energy when the ball of the pendulum is right in the middle.get it?
potential energy is whay makes the pendulum swing back and forth
when its potential energy is greatest
At the highest point of the pendulum (on either side), the head of the pendulum is at the state of highest potential energy (and minimum kinetic energy), this potential energy transforms into kinetic energy as the pendulum drops towards the middle. At its lowest point, the pendulum is at a state of highest kinetic energy (and minimum potential energy), as it swings back up from the bottom, kinetic energy transforms into potential energy as the pendulum gains height and slows down. At the top of this swing, the pendulum is again at a state of highest potential energy and lowest kinetic energy, and the cycle repeats as it swings down again.
At the start of a swing the pendulum has lots of potential energy but no kinetic energy. As it moves downwards the potential energy is converted into kinetic energy. In the upswing the kinetic energy is converted back into potential energy. Some of the energy is converted into heat by friction which is why the pendulum slows down.
When the pendulum swings up, it gains potential energy, but loses kinetic energy. Therefore when it swing down, it gains kinetic energy, but loses potential energy.
If a pendulum is at its center position, then there are two possibilities: 1). It may be swinging. Then its kinetic energy is maximum and its potential energy is zero. 2). It may be stopped altogether. Then it has no energy at all.
a swinging pendulum has its potential and kinetic energy changing.when the swing is at xtreme position it has ma potential energy and at mean position it has max kinetic energy
The pendulum's momentum or kinetic energy is converted to gravitational potential energy until all of the kinetic energy is converted. The pendulum stops.
At the end of each swing the pendulum is motionless = no kinetic energy, all potential,) At the center of each swing its all kinetic energy & no potential.
If at the top of the swing the pendulum is STOPPED then it has zero kinetic energy.
