Hi, in class we done the classic pendulum experiment to investigate the relationship between time period and the length of the string. Here are my averages for time period and the length:
Length (m)----Average time (T1+T2/2)
The Attempt at a Solution
Having drawn the graph of Time against Length and getting a strong postive correlation, I was expecting time squared to produce a curved graph. However, it is coming out as a stretched "s" shape, all be it a very faint one, so it isn't far off from being straight. Should this be the case? And also, do I need both graphs together to demonstrate Time being proportional to Length, or, will either one be sufficient?
