1. An astronaut, Zauri, carried out an experiment using a simple pendulum to measure the acceleration due to gravity g, on an unknown planet X. Their results are tabulated below. Length, I (m) Time for 10 oscillations (s) √ in √m Period, T (s) 1.00 0.80 0.60 0.40 0.20 (a) (b) 16.78 14.88 12.85 10.57 7.45 Copy and complete the table of results. Plot a graph of time period, T, against √ī. Draw the best fit straight line through the points on your graph. Find the gradient of the line. (c) (d) Calculate the acceleration due to gravity, g, using the equation g = 47² gradient²
