What is gravity ?

Topic 1 \$200 Name given to the weight that swings at the end of the pendulum.
What is the bob ?

What is the rest position or equilibrium?
Topic 1 \$300 The name given to the position the pendulum is in when it is not moving. What is the rest position or equilibrium?

Topic 1 \$400 As the length of a pendulum increases the frequency does this.
What is decreases ?

Topic 1 \$500 As the length of a pendulum increases the period does this.
What is increases?

Topic 2 \$100 The point from which the pendulum hangs.
What is pivot point ?

Topic 2 \$200 The height of the pendulum swing.
What is amplitude?

Topic 2 \$300 The distance from the middle of the bob to the pivot point.
What is length ?

What is potential energy to kinetic energy?
Topic 2 \$400 The pendulum is an excellent example of the conversion of these energies. What is potential energy to kinetic energy?

Topic 2 \$500 The only variable that will affect the frequency and period of a pendulum.
