A pendulum has a period of 0.70 s on Earth. What is its period on a planet where the acceleration of gravity is about 0.51 that on Earth?

  • physics -

    Since the period is proportional to sqrt(L/g), the period will get multiplied by sqrt(1/0.51) = 1.400

    That will make the new period 0.980 seconds
