A) when the swing is pulled back prior to release

B) as the released swing begins to move backward

C) just after the release of the swing

D) at the highest point as the swing moves forward

  1. Is it when it is pulled back? And then it goes to kinetic energy when it falls?

    I think so
    but I don’t know
    can someone pls help me

  2. When it has no (1/2) m v^2 all the energy is potential. That is when it is stopped before release and when it stops every half cycle thereafter.
