can a pendulum oscillate in an artificial satellite???
Asked by toppin | 4th Nov, 2010, 06:22: PM
An atrifical satellite constitutes a freely falling body.
Hence the effective g inside a satellite is zero.
Since g proportional to , so if g = 0, its time period becomes infinite. That is the pendulum will not oscillate. Or in other words it will oscillate with a time period of infinity.
We hope that clarifies your query
