- Homework Statement
- I need help and clarification about "Period of Pendulum on the moon"

- Relevant Equations
- T=2π√L/g

The equation that governs the period of a pendulum’s swinging. T=2π√L/g

Where T is the period, L is the length of the pendulum and

On our Moon, the strength of earth’s gravity is only 1/6th of the normal value. If a pendulum on Earth has a

Where T is the period, L is the length of the pendulum and

**g i**s a constant, equal to**9.8**m/s2. The symbol g is a measure of the strength of Earth’s gravity, and has a different value on other planets and moons.On our Moon, the strength of earth’s gravity is only 1/6th of the normal value. If a pendulum on Earth has a

**period of 4.9 seconds**, what is the period of that same pendulum on the moon?
