    Hello Hardik! :smile:

    Are you talking about a pendulum?

    A pendulum is never exactly shm, but it is very nearly so if we assume θ = sinθ.

    Since sinθ = θ - θ3/6 + …

    that means the error will be a function of θ2/6 …

    to find out what function, just plough through the proof. :wink:
