Verification of the Acceleration Due to Gravity by a Simple Pendulum
We know pendulums were used in ancient Egypt and Rome, but it is thought they were also used pre-recorded history. Scholars build their own simple pendulums in the sixth lesson of an 11-part series. Then, through an experiment varying...
