NameClassDateObjectiveStudy of the periodic motion of a simple pendulum IntroductionNumerous things in nature squirm in an intermittent manner. That is, they vibrate. One such case is a basic pendulum. On the off chance that we suspend a mass toward the end of a bit of string, we have a straightforward pendulum. Here, the to and fro movement speaks to an occasional movement utilized as a part of times past to control the movement of granddad and cuckoo tickers. Such oscillatory movement is called straightforward symphonious movement. It was Galileo who initially watched that the time a pendulum takes to swing over and over again through little separations depends just on the length of the pendulum The time of this to and fro movement, called the period, does not rely on upon the mass of the pendulum or on the extent of the bend through which it swings. An alternate component included in the time of movement is, the quickening because of gravity (g), which on the earth is 9.8 m/s2. It takes after then that a long pendulum has a more noteworthy period than a shorter pendulum.The period T of a simple pendulum (measured in seconds) is given by the formula: T=2 ? ? (L/g) T = time for 30 oscillations30 oscillations using equation to solve for "g", L is the length of the pendulum (measured in meters) and g is the acceleration due to gravity (measured in meters/sec2). Now with a bit of algebraic rearranging, we may solve Equation for the acceleration due to g
