i:1,2,3,4,5,
L(cm):80.00,70.00,60.00,50.00,40.00
t1(s):17.87,16.22,16.09,14.08,13.28
t2(2):17.56,16.46,15.09,14.77,13.36
t(s)mean:17.715,16.340,15.590,14.425,
T(t/10)s:1.7715,1.6340,1.5590,1.4425,1.
LogT(s):0.2483,0.2133,0.1928,0.1591,0.1212
Log L(cm):1.9031,1.8451,1.7782,1.6990,1.60
Log T*10^-2(s):24.83,21.33,19.28,15.91,12.
Log L*10^-1(cm):19.031,18.451,17.782,16.9
SLOPE(s)=(LogT2*10^-2 – LogT1*10^-2)(/Log L2 *10^-1 – LogL1*10^-1)
=(21.33-12.12(s))*10^-2/(18.50-16.02(cm)*10^-1)
=3.714*10^-1
=0.3714cm^-1
1axi)
i)ensured supports of pendula were rigged
ii)avoided parallax error on meter rule/stop watch
1bi)
simple harmonic motion is the motion of a body whose acceleration is always direct towards a fixed point and is proportional to the displacement from the fixed points
1bii)
T=1.2secs
Log 1.2=0.079
0079 shown on graph with corresponding Log L read L correctly determined
