Problem 1E

Does the period of a pendulum depend on the mass of the bob? On the length of the string?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 1E Step 1: For small oscillations, the time period of oscillation of a simple pendulum is, T = 2 l g Where, “l” is the length of the pendulum and “g” is the acceleration due to gravity. We know that, “g” is a constant. So, the time period of oscillation is directly proportional to the square root of the length of the pendulum. That is, T l Conclusion: The time period of the pendulum is dependent on the length of the pendulum. It does not depend on the mass of the bob.
