Experiment Overview

This experiment allows students to measure the value of the acceleration due to gravity by means of a simple pendulum and also to ascertain the uncertainty in their measurement of g. It is a simple experiment but it highlights how the theory of the pendulum can be verified by a doing an experiment with a simple pendulum.
