# How do you find the period of a pendulum with length and mass?

## How do you find the period of a pendulum with length and mass?

Section Summary

1. A mass m suspended by a wire of length L is a simple pendulum and undergoes simple harmonic motion for amplitudes less than about 15º.
2. The period of a simple pendulum is T=2π√Lg T = 2 π L g , where L is the length of the string and g is the acceleration due to gravity.

### What is the period on Earth of a pendulum with a length of 2.4 m?

The pendulum has a period of 3.1 s.

#### What is the period of a simple pendulum if the length of the string is 1.0 meter?

Simple Pendulum Period Example Problem Solution: Start with the period of a simple pendulum formula. Answer: The period of a simple pendulum with a length of 1 meter is 2.0 seconds.

What is pendulum length?

Pendulum clocks should be attached firmly to a sturdy wall. The most common pendulum length in quality clocks, which is always used in grandfather clocks, is the seconds pendulum, about 1 metre (39 inches) long. In mantel clocks, half-second pendulums, 25 cm (9.8 in) long, or shorter, are used.

How do you find the KED of a pendulum?

The kinetic energy would be KE= ½mv2,where m is the mass of the pendulum, and v is the speed of the pendulum.

## How does the length of the pendulum affect the height?

The longer the length of string, the farther the pendulum falls; and therefore, the longer the period, or back and forth swing of the pendulum. The greater the amplitude, or angle, the farther the pendulum falls; and therefore, the longer the period.)

### How does length affect the period of a pendulum?

#### How does the length of the pendulum affect its period?

Does pendulum period depend on mass?

The period of a pendulum does not depend on the mass of the ball, but only on the length of the string. Two pendula with different masses but the same length will have the same period. Two pendula with different lengths will different periods; the pendulum with the longer string will have the longer period.
