though my higher secondary book lays down procedures to find the acceleration due to gravity(g} and conclude that it there using a simple pendulum and gives the formula g= 4(pi)^2L/T^2 where L is the length of the string and T is the time period. the author has not given the derivations as my textbooks encourage only rote learning. could you please give me the derivation of this formula and also the proof that acceleration due to gravity exists?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
