Questions & Answers

Q: What is the period of a simple pendulum?

The period of a simple pendulum is the time taken to complete one swing or cycle, and it depends on the length of the pendulum and the gravitational acceleration.

Q: Does the mass of the bob affect the period of a simple pendulum?

No, the mass of the bob does not affect the period of a simple pendulum. The period is determined by the length of the pendulum and the gravitational acceleration.

Q: How can the frequency of a simple pendulum be calculated?

The frequency of a simple pendulum can be calculated by dividing the number of cycles or complete swings by the time taken. It is the reciprocal of the period.

Q: What factors affect the period of a simple pendulum?

The period of a simple pendulum is affected by the length of the pendulum and the gravitational acceleration. The mass of the bob does not affect the period.

Summary & Key Takeaways

  • The simple pendulum consists of a mass attached to a string and swings back and forth, completing one cycle or swing.

  • The period of the pendulum is the time taken to complete one cycle, while the frequency is the number of cycles per second.

  • The period is determined by the length of the pendulum and the gravitational acceleration, while the mass of the bob does not affect the period.
