First-time physicists experiment with pendulums in this physics instructional activity. They vary the weight of the bob, record how long each takes to complete ten period swings, and then calculate the time for one period. They repeat the procedure, this time varying the length of the string. The student lab sheet concludes by having learners graph the results. Here you have a convenient lesson plan and student handout for this classic laboratory investigation.
