Abstract. This paper is devoted to the study of the general forced pendulum equation in the presence of friction, $$u'' + a(t)u' + b(t) \sin u = f(t)$$ with $a,b\in C([0,T])$ and $f\in L^2(0,T)$. We'll show that $T$-periodic solutions may be obtained as zeroes of a $2\pi$-periodic continuous real function. Furthermore, the existence of infinitely many solution s is proved under appropiate conditions on $a,b$ and $f$.
