Description

In the experiment P1.5.1.1, a weight on a cord is used to determine the gravitational acceleration. As the mass of the weight is much greater than that of the cord on which it is suspended, this pendulum can be considered to be a close approximation of a mathematic pendulum. Multiple oscillations are recorded to improve measuring accuracy. For gravitational acceleration, the error then depends essentially on the accuracy with which the length of the pendulum is determined.
