Worksheet: The Simple Pendulum

This worksheet evaluates your understanding about how to model the simple pendulum motion using simple harmonic motion and the factors affecting the period of the simple pendulum.

Q1:

The figure shows a simple pendulum consisting of a ball attached to the end of a light inextensible string of length 165 cm. The pendulum started moving from rest from point 𝐴 oscillating through an angle of 2 πœƒ , where t a n πœƒ = 4 3 . Find the speed of the ball at the point 𝐡 , given that it is the midpoint of the ball’s path. Take the acceleration due to gravity 𝑔 = 9 . 8 / m s  .

  • A 2 8 √ 1 6 5 cm/s
  • B 7 0 √ 6 6 cm/s
  • C 1 4 √ 3 3 0 cm/s
  • D 4 2 √ 1 1 0 cm/s
