Pendulum lab this lab will allow you to test different variables to see how they affect the period of a pendulum you can vary the mass of the pendulum bob, the length of the pendulum, the angle to which you pull the pendulum back, and the gravitational field strength. Simple pendulum lab summary advanced physics 1 starter bundle (ps-2815) equipment and sensor starter bundle for performing 8 experiments in the advanced physics through inquiry 1 teacher guide interface required this experiment may require software and an interface for data collection. Physics pendulum lab katherine unman introduction/purpose: pendulums serve a huge purpose that are often overseen by many due to technological advancements being made in the everyday world a simple pendulum consists of a small object (the “bob”) suspended by a lightweight cord.
Experimental technique: we used a simple pendulum and manipulated several factorswe changed the masses, length of the string, and the amplitude by adjusting the angle for the masses, we found the masses and their center of mass and positioned them at the same length. Lab date: september 2, 2003 lab report submittal date: september 9, 2003 lab 1: the pendulum abstract the goal of this experiment was to determine the effect of mass and length on the period of oscillation of a simple pendulum using a photogate to measure the period, we varied the.

The pendulum experiment is an experiment about gravity pendulums (or pendula if we are being exact) are a fascinating scientific phenomenon. Ib phyiscs sl - pendulum lab 1 physics 35ib th 26 of october 2011background:a simple pendulum consists of a mass called the pendulum bob suspended from a support by a thread thetime for a complete vibration is called the period ( t ) of the pendulum when a pendulum swings through asmall arc its bob is undergoing simple harmonic motion. Description of pendulum physics for a general body to analyze the physics of a pendulum, consider the figure below which shows an arbitrary rigid body swinging back and forth in a plane, about a pivot pthis swinging is due to the force of gravity. Pendulum lab review the distance from the pendulum's point of suspension to the center of mass of its bob the pivot point in an experiment, this is the variable whose value is an outcome of the experiment the point where all of the mass of the object can be considered to be concentrated. Sample lab procedure and report in this laboratory, you will investigate the effects of a few different physical variables on the period of a simple pendulum.
