Lesson: The Period of a Pendulum High School PhysicsPhysics
In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate the period and frequency of a pendulum given its length and the local acceleration due to gravity.
Sample Question Videos
A pendulum has a length of 0.900 m. What is the frequency of the pendulum? Use a value of 9.81 m/s2 for the local acceleration due to gravity. Give your answer to three decimal places.
A pendulum has a period of 4.81 s. What is the frequency of the pendulum? Give your answer to two decimal places.
A pendulum has a frequency of 4.1 Hz. What is the period of the pendulum? Give your answer to 2 significant figures.
