Frequency and Period #2
On this worksheet you will examine properties of a simple pendulum, a vibration graph, and a graph of Period
During an experiment, data is collected on the vibrations of a simple pendulum. A graph of
is plotted and forms a linear graph with a slope of
and a y-axis intercept of
. Use the fact that the numerical value of the slope represents 4π
/g to determine the value of gravity in the lab room.
If the accepted value for gravity at sea level is 9.8 m/sec
, what was the percent error for this group's experiment?
According to the data summarized by the group's regression line in
, determine the frequency of a pendulum that was 68 cm long?
How would the period of a 21 cm pendulum compare to the period of the pendulum in
It would be smaller.
It would be the same.
It would be greater.
What is meant by the term pendulum bob?
It represents a synonym for a pendulum's frequency.
It represents the angle from which a pendulum is released.
The mass attached to the end of a simple pendulum.
It represents the pivot point from which a pendulum vibrates.
none of the four other statements listed is a correct answer.
What would be the correct units to measure the slope of the regression line described in
What is the frequency of a pendulum whose vibration graph is shown below if its 1st crest occured at t = 6.45 sec and its last crest occured at 53.45 seconds .
5.875 x 10
5.222 x 10
Using the equation T = 2
SQRT(L/g) what would be the length of the pendulum in
