In this activity, students will construct a pendulum and create a motion plot for a swinging pendulum. They will also identify characteristics that affect a pendulum's motion.
Students swing a pendulum and use the distance-time graph to calculate the period of the pendulum.
After identifying the factors that might change the period, students investigate those factors experimentally and then use the data table to make conclusions.
This sample data was collected in order to study the relationship between the length of a pendulum and the period.
