Galileo Galilei, born in Italy in 1564 made contributions to Physics and Astronomy and has been called the father of science. He is well known for developing the approach to the scientific theory. His method of careful experimentation and observation… Continue Reading →
This is a simple pendulum experiment. It is a simulation and therefore is a lot easier to carry out than the live experiment. Use it to verify your values for the period of a pendulum for a specific length. The… Continue Reading →
While writing up your lab report, you will often have to mention various sources of errors that you encountered while doing your physics experiment that could’ve affected your final results. They make for good material to put in the discussion… Continue Reading →
The aim of this activity is to find out which of the following 3 variables affect the period of a pendulum: mass of the bob, length of the string and frictional force.
