Question: question 8 we can calculate the value of g acceleration...

Question details

QUESTION 8 We can calculate the value of g (acceleration due to gravity) on Earth using the period of a pendulum. When using the pendulum method, instead of measuring the time it takes for the pendulum to complete one swing (which would be difficult to time accurately since there is human error introduced with starting and stopping the stopwatch) you are going to time how long it takes for the pendulum to make complete swings and then use that measurement to determine the average time per swing.
