A pendulum consists of a mass m = 0.12 kg hanging from a flexible string of length L. The string is very thin, very light, and does not stretch. It makes small oscillations, with a period of 0.663 s. What is the oscillation frequency of the pendulum?
What would the period of the pendulum be on the moon's surface

  • physics -

    F = 1/P = 1/0.663S = 1.51 Hz.
