A mass, considered as of point form, suspended on a thread and subjected to the force of gravity, is deflected from its position of rest. The period of the oscillation thus produced is measured as a function of the thread length and the angle of deflection.


  • Quick and easy set-up
  • Automatically measure the oscillation period using the light barrier


  1. For small deflections, the oscillation period is determined as a function of the cord length.
  2. The acceleration due to gravity is determined.
  3. The oscillation period is determined as a function of the deflection.
