IB Physics: Optional Practical: The conical pendulum (copy)

A conical pendulum is a pendulum that is spun round in a circle instead of swung backwards and forwards. In this experiment a mass is attached to a string and made to spin in a circle of fixed radius, the time period of the motion is related to the length of the string. By varying the length and measuring Time period the acceleration of gravity can be found.How does the time period of a conical pendulum depend upon the...
