## What is the 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 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. One factor which Galileo failed to consider is friction.

### What affects the period of a pendulum lab?

The longer the length of string, the farther the pendulum falls; and therefore, the longer the period, or back and forth swing of the pendulum. The greater the amplitude, or angle, the farther the pendulum falls; and therefore, the longer the period.)

**What would be the method for pendulum experiment?**

Clamp is hold on the top of the stand.

#### What is the simple pendulum experiment?

A simple pendulum is a typical laboratory experiment in many academic curricula. Students are often asked to evaluate the value of the acceleration due to gravity, g, using the equation for the time period of a pendulum. Rearranging the time period equation,

**What are the disadvantages of simple pendulum?**

The disadvantage of simple pendulum jaw crusher: Swing jaw has idle stroke, low production efficiency. The bottom horizontal stroke is large than that of upper, which does not match the crushing process.

## What is the formula for a pendulum?

The formula for the pendulum is the 9.8(time/2pi)^2=L. This is in meters and this is for a full swing ( tick and toc ). The length calculated it actually for the effective mass. makes the pendulum seem shorter.
