Does Length Affect the Period of a Pendulum?


A pendulum is a massive object hanging on a string and suspended from a fixed support so as to swing freely. It is used to learn about the principles of motion. The length of the string affects the period of the pendulum because the longer the string, the longer the period will be and vice versa.
Q&A Related to "Does Length Affect the Period of a Pendulum?"
The period of a pendulum is given by the formula T = 2 * pi * sqrt(l / g) where l is the length of the string, and g is about 9.81 m/s.2.
Pendulum period in seconds. T ≈ 2π√(L/G) L is length of pendulum in meters. G is gravitational acceleration = 9.8 m/s². Length for 1 second = 0.248 m.
The equation for a pendulum's period is T = 2 * pi *
There are two things right out of the gate without getting very technical: 1 - The weight of the added pendulum arm length affects the force needed to swing the pend back and forth,
