Unformatted text preview: no effect on period of a swinging bob. It was experimentally confirmed that a direct relationship existed between amplitude ( L g ) and period of the simple pendulum when varying angular displacements were used. We found the experimental value for g to be 9.87m/ s 2 ± 0.770 m/ s 2 . This value is acceptable within experimental error to the accepted value of 9.8m/ s 2 . The assumption that air resistance was not a factor in the experiment was a source of error with a low magnitude of effect on the values attained experimentally....
