# Mini-Quiz: Equations for a Simple Pendulum

by Ron Kurtus (updated 9 January 2023)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What is the period of motion when the string length is 4 m?

2. If the period of a pendulum is 2 seconds, what is its frequency?

2 Hz

0.5 Hz

3. How does a pendulum on the Moon compare with one on Earth?

It doesn't work, because there is no air on the Moon

Its frequency would be less because gravity (g) on the Moon is less than on Earth

Its frequency would be greater because gravity (g) on the Moon is more than on Earth

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Physics. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Be amazed by things you see
