How Does Amplitude Affect the Period of a Pendulum?

Answer

The period of a pendulum is the measurement of how long it takes for the pendulum to swing between crests. Amplitude is the maximum displacement, or how high or away the pendulum swings from its resting position. The more the amplitude, the more time it generally will take for the pendulum to complete a swing, thus the longer the period.

it doesnt affect the amplitude as the mass and length remain constant.

time period increases with increase in length of the string. T=2*pie*sqrt(l/g)l=length of the string] so T is directly proportional to sqrt(l)so when length of string is increased

It is not true. The period of a pendulum is always dependent on the amplitude, but is approximately true for small amplitudes where sin(theta) is almost theta. In these equations

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,
