Unformatted text preview: Chapt. 16 Oscillations and Simple Harmonic Motion 147 where is the length of the pendulum and g is the gravitational acceleration. A fiducial pendulum period (i.e., period that can be used as a standard for reference or quick estimation) is obtained for a pendulum of length exactly ONE METER and assuming that g = 9 . 8 m / s 2 exactly. What is this fiducial period to 2 significant figures? To 4 significant figures? a) 1 . 0 s and 1 . 010 s. b) 2 . 0 s and 2 . 007 s. c) 2 . 0 s and 2 . 01 s. d) 1 . 0 s and 1 . 01 s. e) 1 . 0 s and 1 . 1 s. 016 qmult 00430 2 3 5 moderate math: pendulum period sans calculator 12. Without using a calculator (youre on your honor here), what is approximately the period of a simple pendulum of length 9 m? HINT: Just look at what the simple pendulum period formula and reflect on the answer to the fiducial pendulum period question. a) 9 . 8 s. b) 162 s. c) 2 . 0 s. d) 1 . 0 s. e) 6 . 0 s....
