increasing the amplitude will increase the period of the pendulum i believe
anonymous
  • anonymous
clue: try to explain how the amplitude of the simple pendulum is directly proportional to its period.

because, i believe, to increase the amplitude you have to pull the bob up higher and because it has to go a greater distance. This will cause the wavelength to increase. This increase in wavelength will increase the period because it take a longer amount of time

that is of course assuming that is is plotted on a graph with time on the x axis and meters on the y axis

uhm no sorry...

wh do you say no?

there is no graph... the conclusion should be that the amplitude of the simple pendulum is directly proportional to its period.

ok well thats basically the same thing. because ill try to sketch it

becasue gravity is constant...if you increase the amplitude the graph will look like this:

so there is a direct relationship between the amplitude and the wavelenth with mean there is a direct relationship between the amplitude and the period

if this is still kind of hard to see there are some interactive pictures on this site to help. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pendulum

the W omega that i will be specifying IS ANGULAR FREQUENCY W=2*(pi)/T velocity V=aW so more v when more amplitude and more W hence less T (see thae first equation)
