## Homework Statement

1) Find the period of a pendulum 50 cm long when it is suspended in (a) a stationary elevator; (b) an elevator falling at the constant speed of 5.0 m/s; (c) an elevator falling at the constant acceleration of 2.0 m/s2; (d) an elevator rising at the constant speed of 5.0 m/s; (e) an elevator rising at the constant acceleration of 2.0 m/s2.

## Homework Equations

Period = 2 pi Squareroot of Length of arm/ Gravity

## The Attempt at a Solution

1) I could solve a) by simply replacing data into the formula, but I am not sure how does the change in velocity and acceleration affects the data that is where I am stuck at.
