Sean Daehn 9-8-2009 Pendulum Lab Report Purpose: To develop a mathematical model for the period of a simple pendulum and determine the relationships between; length, mass, and angle. Apparatus: Pendulum holder- holds the pendulum and the bob. Photo gate- measures the period of the pendulum. Meter Stick- measures the length of the pendulum. Procedure: first, get the pendulum set up. Then, adjust the height of the pendulum to 1.5m also; adjust the height of the photo gate so that the pendulum passes through it. Next, pull back the bob 4cm and let it go. Read the data on the photo gate and record it. Repeat the process raising the pendulum 10cm at a time. Data: Pendulum length data.

There were quite a few graph points that were off the line....
