Tutor description

Once you achieve the gravitational potential energy through the applied work, let go of the swing. Gravity, the ever-acting force, pushes the swing down through the equilibrium and to a point equal in degrees away from the equilibrium, but opposite the point from which it was dropped. The reason the swing moves to this position is that it has the beginning gravitational potential energy, which then converts to kinetic energy.
