Simple PendulumA simple pendulum is one which can be considered to be a point mass suspended from a string or rod of negligible mass. It is a resonant system with a single resonant frequency. For small amplitudes, the period of such a pendulum can be approximated by:

Pendulum MotionThe motion of a simple pendulum is like simple harmonic motion in that the equation for the angular displacement is

Period of Simple PendulumA point mass hanging on a massless string is an idealized example of a simple pendulum. When displaced from its equilibrium point, the restoring force which brings it back to the center is given by:
