A massless string of length \(R\) is there. It starts doing a vertical motion.

If the length of the purple line is \(R \cos \theta \), that means the string's length is reduced, but where does it go?

Length of the purpul line will remain R, why should it change to \(R \cos \theta\)?

I edited the note . We do vertical motion problem by ignoring Rsin(theta) , yeah I know Rsin(theta) is horizontal component and we are doing "vertical" motion . Calculation of h gives a strong feeling that the string becomes short .

The length of the purple line is still R. The length of the red line above h is \(R \cos \theta \). The total length of the red line and purple line are equal to R.
