Lab 8 Pendulum Energy Tier 2 Set-Up B (PE T2 B)


A pendulum is made from a string that is attached to “the ceiling” in two places with a mass hanging in the middle to make a “V”.  The pendulum is pulled back a given distance and released.  The maximum speed attained by the mass is found.  This involves an equation from rotational motion (v=w r).

This is the Lab 8 Tier 2 Set-Up “B” of four set-ups. In each setup the pendulum bob (mass) is pulled back a different distance for each setup.
