Time t = C X sqrt(h/g)

  1. Jan 3, 2009 #1
    I was looking at a Physics class from the MIT. The Professor gave this equation to the "Time":

    t = C X sqrt(h/g)

    What does or can the "C" which is I think is a "Constant" here represent?

    Re: Time

    This looks to me to be the equation for the period of a pendulum of length H, where C is 2*pi.

    Thank you for your reply.

    What I have here is that he said that:

    C = sqrt(2)

    Does that make sense?
