How Does Amplitude Affect the Period of a Pendulum?


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.

Hardly at all, at small displacements or amplitudes. At larger displacements (larger angles) the period will get somewhat longer.
formula for Period(T) of pendulum: T = 2π√L/g {where L = length of pendulum} I see no "amplitude" in the above formula, do U? :

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
