Pendulum

question: What factors determine the swing rate of a pendulum?

prediction: ? I don't get it, It says write a prediction about what factor(s) you think will affect the swing rate and how these factor(s) might affect the swing rate.

We made a pendulum by tying one end of a piece of string to a paper clip(twisted to form a hook) and the other end to the clamp. Then we just put a weight on the hook. 100g and 200g.

oh, okay, I have one question though, was the prediction supposed to be written like a hypothesis or just regularly wording?

P.S-thanks

How would I write the hypothesis? ..

If the pendulum is heavy, then its frequency is going to be slower.

Correct me if I'm wrong, thank you
