pendulum physics questions?

6) When the pendulum is in motion, when is the tension of the string equal to zero?

(a) When the pendulum is at the turning points on either side of equilibrium

(b) When the pendulum is at the equilibrium position

(c) Somewhere between the turning points and the equilibrium point

(d) The tension in the string is never zero

(e) The tension in the string is always zero

7. The force of gravity acting on the pendulum increases as mass increases, but the period remains the same. How would you explain to someone (without using equations) why that is?

    (d) The tension in the string is never zero

    7)

    because the acceleration (g) remains the same
