Determine the natural frequency of a pendulum whose length is 15 ft.

To determine

Find the natural frequency of a pendulum with the length of 15 ft.

Explanation of Solution

Given data:

The length of pendulum (L) is 15 ft.

Formula used:

Consider the general expression for the period of oscillation.

T=1fn (1)

Here,

fn is natural frequency.

Consider the expression for the period of oscillation for pendulum.

T=2πLg (2)

Here,

g is acceleration due to gravity, which is known as 32.2fts2.

Calculation:

Substitute 15 ft for L and 32.2fts2 for g in equation (2),

T=2π15ft32
