im having a little trouble with this part of my lab report, i think ill leave the details out, its just some math trouble.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

here is my equation for frequency v.s function of lenght so that [tex]f\propto L^{-\frac{1}{2}}[/tex]:

[tex]f=5.6*L^{-\frac{1}{2}}[/tex]

now the question is re-write this equation expressing the Period (T) as a fucntion of lenght L. Period being seconds per osc. (freq being osc. per second.)

wat i now so far is [tex]f=\frac{1}{T}=5.6*L^{-\frac{1}{2}}[/tex] beyond that, i not really sure wat the question is asking me to do....

i have 1 more quick question. am i right to say that: yes, a pendulum's amplitude has an affect on its frequency because it has more distance to accelerate due to gravity, therefore giving it a greater velocity and higher frequency?

thanks
