Physic (gravity acceleration and angular velocity)

Question Four
A simple pendulum is used in a physics laboratory experiment to obtain an experimental value for the
gravitational acceleration, g . A student measures the length of the pendulum to be 0.510 meters, displaces
it 10 o
from the equilibrium position, and releases it. Using a stopwatch, the student determines that the
period of the pendulum is 1.44 s. Determine the experimental value of the gravitational acceleration in
two decimal places and the angular speed of the pendulum.
