# How to use *Simple-pendulum* in a sentence

The small oscillations of a

**simple pendulum**in a vertical plane also come under equation (5).This coincides with the equation of motion of a

**simple pendulum**[E 13 (15)] of length 1, provided 1= hf/h.If we produce OG to P, making OP =1, the point P is called the centre of oscillation; the bob of a

**simple pendulum**of length OP suspended from 0 will keep step with the motion of P, if properly started.If it could be arranged that the period of a small oscillation should be exactly the same about either edge, the two knifeedges would in general occupy the positions of conjugate centres of suspension and oscillation; and the distances between them would be the length 1 of the equivalent

**simple pendulum**.In these researches he skilfully took advantage of the well-known property of reciprocity between the centres of suspension and oscillation of an oscillating body, so as to determine experimentally the precise position of the centre of oscillation; the distance between these centres was then the length of the ideal

**simple pendulum**having the same time of oscillation.AdvertisementThe

**simple pendulum**consists of a weight hanging at the end of a string or wire.
