Compound Pendulum Features Low cost, effective teaching Self-contained Wall mounted Simple pendulum included Determination of acceleration due to gravity Introduction to radius of gyration Three year warranty Range of Experiments To determine the radius of gyration of a compound pendulum about its centre of gravity Investigate the effect of fulcrum position To find the acceleration due to gravity 'g' To verify the equation of motion for a compound pendulum Description The metre long bar fitted with a moveable bobweight can be suspended from seven different positions along its length. A simple cord pendulum with adjustable bobweight is included. This enables the radius of gyration of the compound pendulum and the acceleration due to gravity to be determined A stop watch and ruler are provided.This equipment is part of a range designed to both demonstrate and experimentally confirm basic engineering principles. Great care has been given to each item so as to provide wide experimental scope without unduly complicating or compromising the design. Each piece of apparatus is self-contained and compact. Setting up time is minimal, and all measurements are made with the simplest possible instrumentation, so that the student involvement is purely with the engineering principles being taught.
