CBSE Class 11-science Answered

What will be the period of oscillation of a simple pendulum of length 100 cm in a spaceship in a geostationary orbit?

Expert Answer

In any satellite orbiting the Earth (in any orbit), the condition of weightlessness exists (i.e. effective g = 0). Hence, the pendulum does not oscillate and its period is therefore infinity.
