Hyperphysics: Simple Pendulum Feature Summary
- Physics at Home
- You can make a simple pendulum with string or thread, washers, and a paper clip. Time how long it takes the pendulum to go back and forth--that's called the pendulum's period. Try doing this several times and averaging the results. Change the length of the string and the number of washers and see what happens. To learn more, you can visit Hyperphysics: Pendulum.
