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.
Determining the restoring force for a pendulum using the equation F[restoring] = mgsinθ
Determining the frequency of a pendulum from the length of the pendulum and g using f = 1/2Ï â (g/L)
Determining the period of a pendulum from the length of the pendulum and g using T = 2Ïâ (L/g)
Determining the factors that affect the period of a pendulum
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Pendulum.
Shows how pendulum motion changes with different factors such as mass and length.
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.
These flashcards help you study important terms and vocabulary from Pendulum.
