This lab is about a simple pendulum and how its used to determine the value of acceleration due to gravity the length of the string is increased in this experiment.
This is an open-ended lab for students studying the scientific method students study how weight and length affect the swings of a pendulum this handout describes what materials will be. Harmonic motion: pendulums teacher version in this lab you will set up a pendulum using rulers, string, and small weights and measure how different variables affect the period of the. The pendulum experiment is an experiment about gravity pendulums (or pendula if we are being exact) are a fascinating scientific phenomenon.
This lab will allow you to test different variables to see how they affect the period of a pendulum you can vary the mass of the pendulum bob, the length of the pendulum, the angle to which.
Question: what are the factors affecting the swing of the pendulum hypothesis: the effects of the weight the height of the release the length of the string.
Lab 1: the simple pendulum introduction a simple pendulum consists of a mass m hanging at the end of a string of length l the period of a pendulum or any oscillatory motion is the time. Pendulum lab 203 - phet interactive simulations.
Lab group 77 page 2 of 3 the data was copied into excel and graphed theory predicts that there should be no effect of mass on period length variation. Play with one or two pendulums and discover how the period of a simple pendulum depends on the length of the string, the mass of the pendulum bob, the strength of gravity, and the amplitude.
Sample lab procedure and report the simple pendulum in this laboratory, you will investigate the effects of a few different physical variables.Download
