Which of the two is a better expression for the time period of a simple pendulum?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

t-=2∏[itex]\sqrt{(l/g)}[/itex] or t=2∏[itex]\sqrt{(1/T/m)}[/itex] ; l=length of the pendulum

T=time period of the pendulum

m=mass of bob

Note:g is not equal to T/m as there is pseudo centrifugal force such that T + centripetal force=mg
