In this paper, piecewise analytic method (PAM) is used for solving highly nonlinear 2nd  order differential equation (pendulum equations) which is a big problem for engineers and scientists. PAM is used for showing the nonlinear dynamics of the solution with and without linearizion. The error and accuracy of the solution are controlled easily according to our needs.
