the bob of a pendulum is released from horizontal posn a.if the lengthof pendulum is 1.5 m what is the speed with which the bob arrives at lowermost point b, given that it dissipated 5% of its energy against air resistance?

Dear manisha

initial energy of bob = mg*1.5

energy dissipated = 5/100 * (mg*1.5)


now energy balane

 mg*1.5 = 1/2 m v2 + 5/100 * (mg*1.5)

 v2 =3g - 3g/20

v2 =57g/20

v= √(57g/20)
