## How do you make a simple pendulum for a school project?

What to do:

- Tie a weight onto the end of the piece of string.
- Make a loop at the other end of the string.
- Screw the hook into the piece of wood and balance the wood between the backs of two chairs.
- Put the loop of string over the hook.
- Start the weight swinging and time how long it takes to make 20 swings.

**What is the aim of simple pendulum experiment?**

The goal of this experiment was to determine the effect of mass and length on the period of oscillation of a simple pendulum. Using a photogate to measure the period, we varied the pendulum mass for a fixed length, and varied the pendulum length for a fixed mass.

### What is the conclusion of a simple pendulum experiment?

The surprising conclusion – the pendulum traverses a longer distance in a shorter time, than in a shorter distance, and its period is shorter. There are a number of reasons why Galileo thought that the period remains constant.

**What is the principle behind the simple pendulum?**

Pendulum clocks works on the concept of simple harmonic motion. When a body performs oscillations motion between two ends along a path, then its motion is said to be oscillatory motion.

## What is the discussion of simple pendulum?

A simple pendulum consists of a mass m hanging from a string of length L and fixed at a pivot point P. When displaced to an initial angle and released, the pendulum will swing back and forth with periodic motion.

**What is the theory of simple pendulum?**

### How can an experiment improve a pendulum?

Improve the accuracy of a measurement of periodic time by:

- making timings by sighting the bob past a fixed reference point (called a fiducial point )
- sighting the bob as it moves fastest past a reference point. The pendulum swings fastest at its lowest point and slowest at the top of each swing.

**How to make a Pendulum science project?**

where g = 9.8 m/s is the acceleration due to gravity,

## What is the formula for simple pendulum?

T is the period in seconds (s)

**How to solve pendulum problems?**

The potential energy is simply the sum of the cosine components of both lengths.

### What is the simple pendulum experiment?

Simple Pendulum Experiment Report. A simple pendulum may be described ideally as a point mass suspended by a massless string from some point about which it can swing back and forth in a place. A simple pendulum can be approximated by a small metal sphere with a small radius and a large mass compared to the length and mass of the light string
