What is the Latin word for museum?
Etymology. From Latin mūsēum (“library, study”), from Ancient Greek Μουσεῖον (Mouseîon), shrine of the Muses (Μοῦσα (Moûsa)).
What is the plural of pendulum?
If one consults a dictionary, one will find that the plural of pendulum is pendulums. The Oxford English Dictionary (2nd Ed) admits pendula as a rare and archaic plural. Most (if not all) other dictionaries do not even mention pendula as a possibility.
What does pendula mean in English?
What is yes on a pendulum?
Here’s an example of how to program the “yes” signal: Holding the pendulum in position, say “When I ask a question and the answer is yes, move like this, in a clockwise circle.” (or whatever signal you’ve chose for “yes”). Say this as you swing the pendulum in the yes signal. 4.
Is Penduluming a word?
Penduluming is the practice of using a weight hanging from a string or a chain to divine the answers to questions that you or others have.
What makes something a pendulum?
A pendulum is an object hung from a fixed point that swings back and forth under the action of gravity. In the example of the playground swing, the swing is supported by chains that are attached to fixed points at the top of the swing set.
What verb describes the movement of a pendulum?
The verb oscillate can be traced back to the Latin word oscillum, meaning “swing,” so it makes sense that oscillate is used to describe an object like a fan or a pendulum that swings from side to side.
Who invented pendulum?
Who is father of clock?
Why do shorter pendulums swing faster?
Why does the angle the pendulum starts at not affect the period? (Answer: Because pendulums that start at a bigger angle have longer to speed up, so they travel faster than pendulums that start at a small angle.)
What keeps a pendulum moving?
The Earth’s gravity attracts the pendulum. This means that since the pendulum is now in motion, it keeps moving, unless there is a force that acts to make it stop. Gravity works on the pendulum while it is moving. The moving force becomes less as the force of gravity acts on the pendulum.
Why won’t the pendulum keep swinging?
Have you recently moved your clock? The reason a clock pendulum often stops swinging, after being moved, is because the clock case now leans at a slightly different angle then it did at its former location. Don’t worry about making your clock absolutely level with the floor and don’t use a level.
What does it mean when a pendulum swings side to side?
Most of the time, if the answer to your question is “no,” the pendulum will swing from side to side. A back-and-forth movement generally means the answer is “yes.” If your pendulum swings in a clockwise direction means “yes”, a counterclockwise direction means “no”. Hold the pendulum as still as possible.
Where does energy go when a pendulum stops swinging?
Once the weighted end of the pendulum is released, it will become active as gravity pulls it downward. Potential energy is converted to kinetic energy, which is the energy exerted by a moving object.
Where is the maximum potential energy in a pendulum?
A pendulum’s mass has its maximum velocity at the bottom of its path; therefore its KE is a maximum and its GPE is 0. KE equals GPE midway between its highest point and the bottom of its path.
What type of energy did the pendulum have before Person #2 let go?
It was potential energy because the washer could swing due to its relative position and gravity. This kind of potential energy is known as gravitational potential energy. What’s interesting about a pendulum, though, is that when you let go of it, the potential energy gradually transforms into kinetic energy.
Why would a pendulum eventually stop?
The pendulum stops eventually because of air resistance. The pendulum loses energy because of friction. Only in a theoretical situation when there is no friction the pendulum will oscillate forever.
What force causes a pendulum to stop?
What does period of pendulum depend on?
The period of a pendulum does not depend on the mass of the ball, but only on the length of the string. Two pendula with different masses but the same length will have the same period. Two pendula with different lengths will different periods; the pendulum with the longer string will have the longer period.
Can you use a pendulum too much?
The short answer is: maybe. The long answer depends on your pendulum, you, your relationship with your pendulum, and the type of work you’re doing with your pendulum. *This post includes affiliate links.

Can you ask a pendulum anything?
“You can ask the pendulum questions about life, love, health, career, money—whether simple or complex.” So I wouldn’t exactly turn to a pendulum to help you decide on what to have for dinner (although… technically, you could).
Can I use anything as a pendulum?
For your DIY pendulum, you don’t need a metal chain. Just something that it can be hung off of. Some string, or skinny rope will work just as well. If using string or cord, add a little to the length because it’s easier hold the pendulum chain at the knot, rather than at the end of the string.
How do you find something lost with a pendulum?
A straight-line swing is what you’re looking for and it will point the way*. Enter the room and go about half way across the room, in the direction your pendulum showed. Then ask, “Am I standing near my car keys?” If the answer is no, ask your pendulum to show you which direction to go again.
