# The mass of a pendulum moves a total horizontal distance of 14cm in one cycle. What is the amplitude of the vibration?

## To find the amplitude of the vibration, we need to understand the different parts of a pendulum motion. Amplitude refers to the maximum displacement of the pendulum from its equilibrium position.

In this case, we are given that the pendulum moves a total horizontal distance of 14cm in one cycle. However, it's important to note that the total distance covered by the pendulum in one complete cycle is twice the amplitude.

So, to find the amplitude, we divide the total horizontal distance by 2. Let's calculate it:

Amplitude = Total horizontal distance / 2

Amplitude = 14 cm / 2

Amplitude = 7 cm

Therefore, the amplitude of vibration in this pendulum is 7 cm.
