Period of Pendulum Lab

http://www.thephysicsaviary.com/Physics/Programs/Labs/PendulumLab/index.html

Go to the applet above to perform the lab.  Create three data tables that compare the following quantities:
 Mass (kg) Period (s)

 Length of Pendulum (m) Period (s)

 Angle of Release (degrees) Period (s)

You need to collect as many data points as you are able.  In order to find the period, you need to measure the difference between the top of one wave and the top of the next one.

Once you've collected all your data, you need to create a graph for each data table.  Then, answer the following questions:

1. Which items affect the period?  How do you know?

2. What relationships do you observe?

Once you do this, go back do do 3 more trials for the length of pendulum versus period and graph all the data points.  What do you notice about the relationship?

Directions:
Go to the applet above to perform the lab.
You need to create three data tables that compare the following quantities:
 Mass (kg) Period (s)

 Spring Constant (N/m) Period (s)

 Amplitude (m) Period (s)

You need to collect as many data points as you are able.  In order to find the period, you need to measure the difference between the top of one wave and the top of the next one.

Once you've collected all your data, you need to create a graph for each data table.  Then, answer the following questions:

1. Which items affect the period?  How do you know?
