The laws of a simple pendulum

1st law or the law of isochronism: The time period (T) is constant, when effective length (L) and gravity (g) are constants. This means that......

Seconds Pendulum

Definition: If the time period of a pendulum is 2 seconds, it is called Seconds Pendulum. i.e. It is a pendulum which takes one second......

Simple Pendulum

Definition: A Simple Pendulum is defined as a heavy particle suspended by a weightless, in-extensible but perfectly flexible string. The point of suspension should be......

Oscillatory Motion

Definition: It is a kind of periodic motion in which an object reverses its direction after a certain interval of time. Any particle in periodic......

Periodic Motion

Definition: If the motion of a particle (or an object) is such that, it passes through a certain point from the same direction after a......

What is meant by Simple Harmonic Motion?

If the periodic and oscillatory motion of a particle is such that, its acceleration is directly proportional to the displacement from its equilibrium position of......
