If I hang a small cylindrical object with a string, I get a pendulum. When I swing it, the object mostly rotates about its axis. What effect does this rotation have on the time period of the pendulum? Can we find out the effect quantitatively?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0T = 2π*SQRT(L/g) so i dont think that the torque would poduce any effect on the time period as T is independent of mass(moment of inertia) in casev of rotating objects

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Interesting question, @Salini  That relation is only valid for point mass objects. This is a cylinder. Hence we have to consider it a torsional as well as physical pendulum according to the question. That's what you're asking right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, that's right siddhantsharan. i want it for a sphere or cylinder or any rigid object

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and there will be some effect, even if little. that i am certain, because while measuring the time period of a pendulum in the lab, we were asked to make sure that the bob doesnt rotate about its axis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And Even the Amplitude will decrease. Reason: Total Energy remains constant.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from the experiments using a simple pendulum i have noticed that as the pendulum starts to rotate slowly,the time of oscillations starts to decrease

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@201116252, That's probably because the amplitude decreases. The pendulum should take less time to cover less distance.
