Dear pallavi

when pendulam is reliesed them decrese in potential energy will increase the kinetic energy

energy balance

 mg(l/2)  = mv2/2

 v2= gl ..........1

now at lower most position centrifugal force as well as weight both acting in downward direction which is balance by tension in string

so T = mg + mv2/(l/2)

       = mg + 2mg
