Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Tom on Monday, January 7, 2013 at 2:53pm.

Hello everyone,

I have made measurements of the periods of a pendulum attached to a stationary point at a certain height h. When plotting the periods as a function of the square root of the length minus the height it gives us a straight line. I now need to prove that this line minus 1/2*Huygens' law (2π*sqrt(l/g)) equals π*sqrt((l-h)/(g)).

My problem is that I can't find out how I should prove this mathematically. Does anyone here know a solution or do you think that I just have to test it for the measurement data?

Thanks in advance to everyone who spends a second thinking about it!
