Pendulum Pandemonium

Published by at 8:43 PM under Science

Have you ever heard of a pendulum?  We are studying a unit on variables and we’ve started by investigating pendulums aka “swingers”.  We’ve learned about what variables may affect a pendulum’s number of swings in 15 seconds. We explored:

1. changing the mass of the pendulum bob (we used Thai baht coins)

2. changing the release position

3. changing the length of the string

What variable do you think would affect the number of swings in 15 seconds??
