During the course of this practical, the different factors of a pendulum will be investigated. A pendulum is a mass held from a fixed point so it is able to swing freely, the mass swings back and forth in an arc. The formula for finding the period of a certain pendulum lies in the change of the length of string suspending the mass, and the force due to gravity where the pendulum is being used. This relationship is shown in the equationT=2π√( L/g) (Sean, 2010), as the length of the string increases the period will increase, and as the force due to gravity increases the period will decrease. In this experiment the relationship between mass of the ball and the period will be investigated, it is assumed from the equation that the changing of the…

Tim Carter ENGL 1302 George Edwards 10 October, 2016 Cheating Death in The Pit and the Pendulum In 1480, Ferdinand II from Aragon and Isabella I of Castile, initiated the mass genocide that is commonly known today as the Spanish Inquisition. These two catholic monarchs decided that anything not catholic needed to be purged from society to live true Christian lives. This resolution then became the foundation for them to sentence people to death for not being catholic or supporting progressive…

Abstract The value for the acceleration of gravity was measured in this report through the investigation using three different methods, each varying in accuracy, to calculate the period of a pendulum. The period was measured by repeatedly timing the time it took for the pendulum to return to its original position once it was swung from a certain point (for the first method one oscillation was timed, however in the second and third ten oscillations were timed and the overall time was divided by…

For example: their functions. Modern seismographs have a function that the ancient one didn’t. They could read an earthquake’s frequency. The designs of modern seismographs are different as well. There are many different versions of the seismograph used throughout history. A Modern Seismograph. Instead of an urn-like instrument made of copper, one of the modern seismographs has a stylus attached to the bottom of a pendulum. When the Earth moves, so does Example of seismograph recordings. the…

This year I have the honor of spending my days with 24 five year just starting their literacy journey. The undertaking is a daunting task (thankfully I have an amazing classroom teacher leading the way), the standards in place for kindergarten students are high. Finding a balance between strategies that distill a text into identifying letters and producing letter sounds, and allowing the students to find delight in a book of their own choice is imperative. I am humbled daily by their…

observe others for any “suspicious activity”, in other words, the “bad” behavior Foucault discussed. The phrase itself demands that anything not matching the norm be reported. Mr. Kay himself, who had been inspired by past propaganda (specifically “loose lips sink ships”), noticed this, and “thought it was ironic because we want just the opposite. We want people to talk. I wanted to come up with something that would carry like that. That would be infectious.” This desire to help in times of…

OBJECTIVE: The pump is made of pendulum, two-leg lever and cylinder with the piston which pumps the water. Oscillation of the pendulum is maintained by periodical action of the human arm. Oscillation period of the pendulum is twice bigger than the period of the lever oscillation. Piston of the pump has reverse effect on the lever and damps its oscillation. Damping of the lever motion causes damping of the pendulum, but the work of the force damping the pendulum is less than the work of the…

INTRODUCTION Can the magnitude of gravity be found by measuring the period in relation to the length of the string of an oscillating pendulum? The aim with this lab was for us to gain a greater understanding in the area of oscillations and simple harmonic motion. Also to determine if the use of a pendulum is a good strategy for measuring the gravity. I found this experiment to be very interesting since I’ve seen and used pendulums a lot before, but I have never really reflected on why they…

People who are trying to survive are rarely found in this world today because giving up is common. Edgar Allan Poe, the author of “The Pit and the Pendulum,” conveyed a message to his audience that in order to survive, one cannot give up. Poe used many symbols throughout his stories such as: religious symbols, death symbols, and symbols referring to people on earth and the issues that are happening today. He also often used symbols to connect with his audience and emphasize the importance of…

a small and portable clock. One of the most famous inventors named Galileo made many improvements on clocks. Galileo during the early 1600’s created a weight that was suspended from a point in which the weight swings back and force, due to gravity (Wallace).The pendulum was an advancement to the clock, and improved the sppring driven clock. Due to Galileo’s death, the pendulum was never invented, so Christiaan finished the invention the pendulum.Galileo was the first to experiment with the…
