Describe simple pendulum

Expert Answer:

A simple pendulum is a heavy point mass called the bob suspended from a rigid support by a massless and inextensible string.

NOTE: This is only an ideal case as a point mass which is heavy and a massless string are practically impossible to produce.


When the bob at the rest position is moved to one side and released, the pendulum is set in motion. The rest position is called the mean position of the pendulum.
