Problem 16.10: Determine the effective acceleration due to gravity

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

A pendulum is allowed to oscillate in an accelerating elevator as shown in the animation (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds). Determine the effective acceleration due to gravity by analyzing the motion. Restart.
