Students will learn about the harmonic motion of a pendulum and how to calculate its period.
The period of a pendulum and the factors that determine it are explained. The length of a pendulum required to be used in a clock is calculated.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Pendulum.
This study guide reviews simple harmonic motion: restoring force, period, frequency, and damped/driven harmonic motion. It also looks at spring system and pendulum system.
