Length of the
pendulum(cm )
d The period of the pendulum swing is longer when the
pendulum is longer // 1

The longer the length of the pendulum, the longer the
period of the pendulum to swing.
e Manipulated V = Length of the pendulum
Responding V = Time taken for one oscillation // the 3
period for one complete oscillation.
Controlled V = Mass/size of the pendulum bob
f 2.5 s 1

g The period of the pendulum to make one complete
swing increases with the length of the pendulum. //
The period of the pendulum to make one complete
14
oscillation increases when the length of the pendulum 1
increases. //
When the length of the pendulum increases , the
period of pendulum to make one complete oscillation
also increases.
a The child R with a shorter length will swing faster than
3 the child P and Q. 1
b The child R has a shorter length of swing will swing
fastest. 1
c The shorter the length of swing, the shorter the time
taken to swing. 1
