Abstract: This lab report comprises of an experiment to determine the value of g by experimentally finding the length and time period of compound pendulum through graphing the length along x- axis and time period across y-axis and the moment of inertia by calculating the radius of gyration through experimental data. Balance pendulum on wedge and mark Centre of mass G. Hang the pendulum on support from the top most whole at side A when pendulum is in upright position for A to be the upper half. Measure the time for 10 vibrations, calculate time period and record your data. Now, hang it from the second, then third, then fourth whole and so
on… from side A and experimentally determine time period for each. Note down your readings. Repeat step 2-4 for side B of the compound pendulum. Now draw the graph with time period against y-axis and length against x-axis while taking all the lengths of one side as negative. Draw straight horizontal line through the curve and mark the

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
