simple harmonic motion → term for periodic motion that follows the same path over the same time interval and is caused by a restorative force that is proportional to displacement

physical pendulum → term for any rigid body mounted so that it can swing in a plane about a point of support

centripetal acceleration → term for any force producing centripetal acceleration

the square root of the acceleration due to gravity → The period of a pendulum is inversely dependent on....

centripetal force → term for any force that pushes or pulls an object away from the center of a circle

natural frequency → term for the number of oscillations that occur per unit time

period → term for the absolute value of the maximum displacement in either direction during oscillation

oscillatory motion → term for any motion that occurs repeatedly after the same lapse of time

the square root of its length → The period of a pendulum depends on..

equilibrium → point at which the restorative force on an object and its original force are in balance

simple pendulum → term for any rigid body mounted so that it can swing in a plane about a point of support

resonance → term for the number of oscillations that occur per unit time

periodic motion → term for any motion that occurs repeatedly after the same lapse of time

centrifugal force → term for any force producing centripetal acceleration

amplitude → term for the absolute value of the maximum displacement in either direction during oscillation

frequency → term for the number of oscillations that occur per unit time

uniform circular motion → term for periodic motion that follows the same path over the same time interval and is caused by a restorative force that is proportional to displacement
