Investigating factors which affect the period time of a simple pendulum.
The first 200 words of this essay...
Investigating factors hich affect the period time of a simple pendulum
Investigating factors which affect the period time of a simple
Definitions: Oscillation : Repeated motion of pendulum (to and for)
Period (T) : Time taken for one full oscillation
In this investigation, I am going to experimentally determine a factor which
will affect the period of a simple pendulum and the mathematical relationship
of this factor. This type of pendulum will consist of a mass hanging on a length
Factors which affect the period (T) of a pendulum:
- Length (L) of pendulum
- Angle of amplitude
- Gravitational field strength (g)
- Mass of bob
I predict that the period will be affected by the length of the pendulum. An
increase in length will produce an increase in time. I based by prediction on
the scientific theory I found in a physics text book:
The pendulum is able to work when the bob is raised to an angle larger than
the point at which it is vertically suspended at rest. By raising the bob,
