    A simple pendulum of mass m and lenghth l is suspended in a car travelling with a constant speed v around a circle of radius r.If the pendulum undergoes small oscillations about its equilibrium position, what will be the frequency of the oscillations??
    2. Relevant equations

    [tex]n=1/2\pi (\sqrt{l/g}[/tex])
    [tex]mv^2/r =mg[/tex]
