Question 20

A seconds’ pendulum is taken to a place where the acceleration due to gravity falls to one-fourth. How is the time period of the pendulum affected, if at all? Give reason. What will be its new time period?

The time period is affected by the acceleration due to gravity. The relation is given below clearly states that:

T ∝√1/𝑔. The time period is inversely proportional to the square root of acceleration due to gravity. Hence, when ‘g’ falls one-fourth, time period increases, it doubles.

Hence, the new time period is 2 x 2 = 4s.
