Shown is a simple pendulum which has a mass
We could take another and use angular momentum to solve the
problem. Recall that:
The compound pendulum is another interesting example of a pendulum that
undergoes simple harmonic motion. For an extended body then one uses the
center of mass and the moment of inertia. Use the center of mass, the moment
of inertia and the Torque (angular force)
