A simple pendulum, length L, completes 12 oscillations in 30 seconds here on the earth where g= 9.8 nt/kg. The same length pendulum on a certain moon of Jupiter, completes 18 oscillations in 54 seconds.
b.) Find the weight on the surface of that moon, of a person whose weight on the surface of the earth is W=686 nt.
a.) From the equation for a simple pendulum executing simple harmonic motion (SHM), recall that if the length of the pendulum is L and the gravity field is g, the period of the SHM, is given ...
The solution clearly explains the problem in arriving at answers.
