The main purpose of this experiment is to determine whether these variables: mass, length, and amplitude to are factors that affect the period of a pendulum. These factors mass of the weight measured in kilograms length of the string measured in meters and, the amplitude of the string measured in degrees. These factors are used to measure period ďwhich is the time it takes for 1 complete cycle of motion directly the period of a simple harmonic motion is the time in on islington and independent of this mass or amplitube.
The way this is sperm it must be accurately test it is to attach the menace to the string and string to the rings stand. watch this set up is complete for the love pendulum was constructed by the rings stand string and washer. good data was recorded for the different length of time of period for the pendulum with different amount of man at the end of the street name length this train an amplitude
The data shows that the length of the string had the most effective impact on the period of a pendulum , on the other hand the mass had no effect in the arrange in period. Data from the amplitude displayed very little affect compared to the changes made by the length. As the length of the string increased so did the period dramatically while, as mass increased there was only a .09-.03s change in period. With amplitude there was some change as much as .49s but, this change is also too small to be considered a real factor in the affectless of a period. Errors that may had occur that would produce these results would be first the atm. If the atm was lower than normal then the period would be shorter. Another error would be the increase in wind current, increased or decreased the period. So in conclusion the only factor that affects the period of a simply pendulous is length.
