human error that took place. However there is still around an 80% accuracyresulting in information that is adequate for this experiment.Error Sources and Concluding Remarks:With all the human errors such and timing, measuring and accurately count thenumber of time the pendulum osculates it is harder to compile very accurate data.But, there are many ways to make the experiment better, by having another personthat could help with the experimentation would drastically increases the accuracy ofthe results. This is for the reason that they could time or count the number ofoscillations, rather then one person trying to multitask and end up with moreinaccurate results. Even though, this lab could have been improved I did expand myoverall knowledge of how pendulums affect harmonic motion.References:!“Physics - Simple Harmonic Motion - University of Birmingham.” Tunisia's 'Jasmine Revolution' and Its Aftermath: Defining New Expectations for the Arab World?, -university/stem/Physics/stem-legacy-SHM.aspx.!“AP Physics - Experiment 2.” Free Fall - Velocity & Acceleration, d_of_shm.htm.
