    What is the difference between the time period of Simple Pendulum and Time period of S.H.M




    time period of Simple Pendulum depend on length while Time period of S.H.M depend on mass , what will be the other differences?

    Time period of SMH does not depend on the amplitude of the oscillation and acceleration due to gravity.
    Time period of pendulum is derived for the small amplitude.
