a pendulum of length 'L' having a mass 'M' attached as it's bob and it oscillates with a time period 'T'. what will be the force tangential to the pendulum

1. just above the point of suspension of the pendulum
2. at a distance 'r' below the point of suspension

## 1. What factors affect the period of a pendulum?

The period of a pendulum is affected by the length of the pendulum, the mass of the bob, and the gravitational acceleration at the location where the pendulum is being used.

## 2. How does the length of the pendulum affect its period?

The period of a pendulum is directly proportional to the square root of its length. This means that as the length of the pendulum increases, its period will also increase.

## 3. What is the formula for calculating the period of a pendulum?

The formula for calculating the period of a pendulum is T = 2π√(L/g), where T is the period, L is the length of the pendulum, and g is the gravitational acceleration.

## 4. How does changing the mass of the bob affect the period of a pendulum?

The mass of the bob does not affect the period of a pendulum. The period only depends on the length of the pendulum and the gravitational acceleration.

## 5. Why does a pendulum eventually stop swinging?

A pendulum eventually stops swinging due to the effects of air resistance and friction. These forces cause the pendulum to lose energy and eventually come to a stop.
