Mini-Quiz: Demonstration of a Pendulum

by Ron Kurtus (updated 9 January 2023)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What happens when you start from a different angle?

The length of the string is stretched

The period of motion does not change

The pendulum does not move

2. What happens when the length of the string is increased?

The pendulum frequency is slower

It is uncertain, since no one has ever tried that

The pendulum frequency is faster

3. What can cause damping on the motion of a pendulum?

Changing the length of the string

If the string is damp or wet

Air resistance and friction

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Physics. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Keep in motion to succeed
