A pendulum is pulled over by a distance R.
The pendulum has a mass of 15.1kg

1) Compute the work done by pulling the pendulum to this point. Next the pendulum is given a push so it circles its neutral position along the radius R.

2) Find the kinetic energy of the circling pendulum

The length of the string is "l" and R is the distance of the pendulum from the place it would be at rest
