Best Answer

Air resistance, Gravity, Friction, The attachment of the pendulum to the support bar, Length of String, Initial Energy (if you just let it go it will go slower than if you swing it) and the Latitude. Amplitude only affects large swings (in small swing the amplitude is doesn't affect the swing time).

Mass of the pendulum does not affect the swing time.

A formula for predicting the swing of a pendulum: T=2(pi)SQRT(L/g)

T = time

pi = 3.14...

SQRT = square root

L = Length

g = gravity

-- friction in the pivot -- air moving past the pendulum -- the effective length of the pendulum -- the local acceleration of gravity

A heavier pendulum will swing longer due to its greater inertia.

You can affect the pendulum to move down or up and it will be will might be 11 or 12 seconds because of the length and how you want the pendulum for it to move.

how is pendulum swing related to teaching process?

If it is a short pendulum, then the leg or whatever you call it has a smaller distance to cover, and therefore can swing faster than a longer pendulum.

A simple pendulum.

The factors that affect a simple pendulum are; length; angular displacement; and mass of the bong.

If the pendulum was pushed with a large force or if it was heavier. It might swing faster.

The acceleration of a pendulum is zero at the lowest point of its swing.
