In class we tested the period of different lengths of pendulums. When we squared the period and graphed it against the distance it caused a slope of 3.974 s^2/m. We kept the angles under 15 degrees. We were told that this is close to a constant and asked to figure out what that constant is and what it means, but i can not for the life of me find it in our textbook or on the internet.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks in advance.
