hey guys, i've been experimenting with a pendulum and while doing the error discussion for my experiments i got stuck with the air resistance involved...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've used the formula to find the force applied by the air resistance to the pendulum and ended up with F=2,76*10^-5 *v^2 . (v= velocity of the pendulum).

Basically i just want to estimate how much of an error percentage of my results air resistance has caused, but i don't have much of an idea how to calculate this percentage.

thanks for your help!
