 Physics
A simple pendulum suspended in a rocket ship has a period T0. Assume that the rocket ship is near the earth in a uniform gravitational field.
true or false:
a) If the mass of the pendulum is halved, the period decreases.
b) If the ship accelerates downward at 9.81 m/s2, the pendulum will no longer oscillate.
c) If the ship accelerates upward, the period increases.
d) If the ship moves upward with a constant velocity, the period decreases.
e) If the length of the pendulum is doubled, the new period will be: square root of 2 times T0.
