hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i have been doing research on the effects of gravity on a pendulum but i still cant seem to find the relationship between the two.

what i got so far is that gravity wont stop the pendulum but air resistance and friction would do the job and that gravity will only affect its oscillation? by making its trip smaller?

also a pendulum runs on sine/cosine curve?? how will gravity affect the period that it takes a pendulum to cycle through?

thanks
