Introduction

Kasim Hassan

Physics Coursework

In this investigation, I am going to find the time taken for a basic pendulum to perform a full oscillation (to and fro).

The aim of this experiment is to find one of the factors affecting the mass of oscillation on a wire. We will be keeping the length of wire the same throughout the entire experiment, but we will change the mass of the wire.

The pendulum will be string, with a weight (Bob) hanging on the end.

The factor that will affect the time taken for one full oscillation is the mass of the weight.

Oscillation is the regular movement of a mass back and forth; from one direction to another e.g.

Evaluation

In my opinion, the experiment went well. I managed to obtain a full set of results, which were accurate, and which I managed to make good use of. I was initially surprised
