Oscillation
One complete toandfro motion (A>B>C>B>A) or (B>C>B>A>B)
Period
Time taken for one complete oscillation
Classic Pendulum Questions
1a. Describe an experiment to show how the period of a pendulum can be determined.
 The simple pendulum is made to oscillate at a small angle.
 When the oscillation is steady, the time taken for 20 oscillations is measured using a stopwatch.
 The measurement is repeated and the average is calculated.
 The period of the pendulum is given by average time for 20 oscillations divided by 20.
1b. State the precautions you would take for the experiment.
 Ensure that the oscillation is steady before starting to time.
 Ensure that the angular displacement of the bob is less than 10 degrees.
