T=2π√((L)/(9.8)) [it is all under square root]

Q1: write in function notation

Q2: state the domain of this function

Q3: Graph the function pendulums up to 20 m in length

Q4: when T = 10, how long would the pendulum be

Q5: If the pendulum was twice as heavy, what would T be?

**Reiny**, Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 8:20pmT(L) = 2π √(L/9.8)

domain: any positive value of L

graph: you'll have to do this, by making a table of values, pick any L, use your calculator to find T

plot all your (L,T) s

when T = 10

10 = 2π √(L/9.8)

square both sides

100 = 4π^2 (L/9.8)

980/(4π^2) = L = 24.824 m

The weight of the pendulum is not a factor, T would be the same.
