  1. The Simple Pendulum

  2. What did we measure? What things affected the period of the pendulum?

  3. Is there a real effect here or just an illusion?

  4. Is there a real effect here or just an illusion?

  5. Is it a straight line or a curve?

  6. KE vs PE • KE should equal PE • PE at ends of pendulum swing should equal KE at center • PE at top of roller coaster run should equal KE at bottom • PE at top of building should equal KE at bottom

  7. Pendular Motion The period of the simple pendulum is given by Where T is the period, L is the length of the pendulum, and g is the acceleration due to gravity. T is a function of length. It has a weak dependence on the angular displacement and should not be affected by the mass.
