 Q8. 2. A group of student carried out an experiment to study the relationship between the length of pendulum and the period of the pendulum swings. Diagram 8.2 shows the apparatus set up of the experiment. In this experiment, the pendulum of different length is used. The period for ten complete swings is recorded for the respective lengths of the pendulum. string
Retort stand
Pendulum
bob

Diagram 8.2 (a )

Record the period for then complete swings for the respective length of the pendulum in the spaces provided. Length of pendulum = 10 cm Period for 10 complete swings = 10.0 seconds Length of pendulum = 20 cm Period for 10 complete swings = ………………… seconds Length of pendulum = 30 cm Period for 10 complete swings = ……………… seconds Length of pendulum = 40 cm Period for 10 complete swings = ……………… seconds Length of pendulum = 50 cm Period for 10 complete swings = ……………… seconds
