Swing in Time

Students examine the motion of pendulums and come to understand that the longer the string of the pendulum, the fewer the number of swings in a given time interval. They see that changing the weight on the pendulum does not have an effect on the period. An excellent worksheet which guides the students through the experiment is imbedded in this plan.
