Problem 6E

Is the time required to swing to and fro (the period) on a playground swing longer or shorter when you stand rather than sit? Explain.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

When you stand,the pendulum is effectively shorter,because the center of mass of the pendulum is raised and closer to the pivot.because it takes a shorter time.here the center of gravity is higher and closer to the pendulum swing.hence the time required to swing to and fro on a playground swing shorter when you stand rather than sit.
