Question

can you think of an experiment to measure gravitational
acceleration using simple pendulum? describe how you would analyze
the data for that purpose?

Answer #1

Yes, We can measure gravitational acceleration g through an experiment in which we will measure the time period and the length of the pendulum.

We know that, Time period T = 2pi sqrt(L/g) where L is length

g = 4pi^2*L/T^2

We will measure time period by a stop watch by measuring time taken for N cycles and divide that time to get average time period T, and will measure length using meter scale.

After this the, the measured values of T and L can be put in above equation to find the value of g.

1) Suppose you want to use a simple pendulum to measure
accurately the acceleration of gravity around the Earth. Gravity on
the Earth's surface varies by around 0.7%, from 9.7639
m/s2 on the Nevado Huascarán mountain in Peru to 9.8337
m/s2 at the surface of the Arctic Ocean (according to
Wikipedia). Your pendulum has a length of 0.750 m, and you time its
oscillations while you count 200 full periods in each location.
What is the maximum error, in seconds,...

A simple pendulum consists of a ball of mass m suspended from
the ceiling using a string of length L. The ball is displaced from
its equilibrium position by a small angle θ and released. Which one
of the following statements concerning this situation is
correct?
(a) If the mass were increased, the period of the pendulum would
increase.
(b) The frequency of the pendulum does not depend on the
acceleration due to gravity.
(c) If the length of the...

In the lab, we learned how to find the free fall acceleration by
using simple pendulum. At one end, assume that I have attached a
very heavy ball of 120 kg to an aluminum wire of 3 mm-diameter and
length 9.0 m-length. Other end is attached to the ceiling. When the
ball was first hung from the aluminum wire, how much did the
aluminum wire stretch and how much is the strain and stress induce
in the wire? You may...

In a given experiment you measure the maximum kinetic energy of
an object Kmax and the maximum potential energy Umax. The potential
energy of the reference point is zero. You repeat the experiment
using different conditions and acquire a set of values for these
two quantities. Draw the expected graph of maximum potential and
against maximum kinetic energy for this set of experiments.
I'm not entirely sure how to do this problem; would the graph
just be energy...

Describe how you could measure the magnetic force due to an
external uniform magnetic field using magnets and a scale. (Hint:
The experiment can be designed to that the magnets experience the
magnetic force in the same direction as the force of gravity.

You want to do an experiment to measure the conversion of
gravitational
potential energy to kinetic energy to heat by dropping 2.0 kg
of copper
off the roof of LEHS, a height of 14 m. How much will the
temperature of
the copper increase?
(Hint: Remember that potential energy is measured in J but
specific heat
capacity problems usually use kJ.)
