#### Question

Suppose the amplitude of a simple pendulum having a bob of mass m is θ_{0}. Find the tension in the string when the bob is at its extreme position.

#### Solution

Let T be the tension in the string at the extreme position.

Velocity of the pendulum is zero at the extreme position.

So, there is no centripetal force on the bob.

∴ T = mgcosθ_{0 }

Is there an error in this question or solution?
