Q .14.17 A simple pendulum of length l and having a bob of mass is suspended in a car.The car is moving on a circular track of radius with a uniform speed . If the pendulum makes small oscillations in a radial direction about its equilibrium position, what will be its time period?
Acceleration due to gravity = g (in downwards direction)
Centripetal acceleration due to the circular movement of the car = ac
(in the horizontal direction)
Effective acceleration is
The time period is T'
