Does length of
string affect the
period of
oscillation?

Pendulum
is
a
hypothetical
pendulum
suspended by a weightless frictionless thread of
constant length.
The pendulums period is tested by using
different length of spring .
Which length of string that slower and faster the
period of the pendulums oscillation?

What other
application
that similar to
pendulum

How to avoid
damping?

What is the
graph
shape?

What can you


get from
observing the
experiments

~DATA
FINDINGS~

PROCEDURE
1.The apparatus was set up as shown in
figure 1.
2.The length of the string that attach to
the constant mass was set as 20cm
length.
3.The pendulum is displaced so that it
performed oscillation of simple
harmonic motion.
4.The data were recorded automatically
by using motion detector.
5.Stop the experiment after te pendulum
has make 20 oscillations.

DISCUSSION
From experiment ,we use data logger as the medium to detect the
time and the angular positions of the pendulum.
From the graph ,the time to complete 20 oscillation can be
determine .The period calculate by using time to complete 20
oscillation divided by 20.
The time taken 20 oscillation for 20cm string was 19.23s and the
time taken for 10cm string was 15.89s from the formula below.

The time taken for oscillation , T is directly proportional to the


string length, l .Therefore ,the longer the l , the longer the T.

DISCUSSION
By using the formula:

The acceleration of gravity is calculated was 8.67ms


The percentage error calculated in this experiment is
12.64%
This indicated that there were some errors that
occurred during the experiment process. There errors
could be:
-Air resistance( solution : do the experiment at the
vacuum
- Human error (solution: measure the length of the l
precisely and carefully

CONCLUSION
From the experiment , the value of gravitational acceleration
obtained is 8.67ms is 12.64%
percentage error compare
to the theoretical value which is 9.81ms
The longer the length of string , the longer the period for
oscillation taken.
The data logging application used was Data studio which the data
reading taking automatically by the computer.

~APPLICATION OF PENDULUM~

CASE

Firefighters had to rescue a boy aged 10 that carried by the water


flow to other side of river .Which rope should be used by the
firefighter to get to other side in the short time??

Why??
Explain?

How to make this item swing for long time ??
