    Bar Pendulum Graph name???

    Hi!!
    WWhen i did the Bar graph experiment, i obtained a parabolic curve on negative and positive x axes
    (time period^2 vs distance from cg graph). Can anyone tell me what it's actually called, the actual name of the graph???

    What exactly was your experiment? To find the period of oscillation of a bar?

    If you plotted T2 vs L, you should get a straight line passing through the origin.

    What did you plot and how does your graph look? (Can you post a picture of your graph?)
