Three page lab. Students change the mass of a pendulum. They then change the length and discover it is the length that affects the number of swings. This is a great lab and you even get good results with even poorly made pendulums. Students graph length Vs. Freq. and make an extrapolation. 8 questions and students sketch a swing pendulum marking where the greatest KE and PE and where the lowest KE and PE.
