# compound pendulum in a sentence

1. By his study of the oscillation period of compound pendulums Huygens made pivotal contributions to the development of the concept of moment of inertia.
2. Kater's pendulum is a compound pendulum that uses this property to measure the local acceleration of gravity, and is called a gravimeter.
3. In 1673 Christiaan Huygens introduced this parameter in his study of the oscillation of a body hanging from a pivot, known as a compound pendulum.
4. The natural frequency of oscillation of a compound pendulum is obtained from the ratio of the torque imposed by gravity on the mass of the pendulum to the resistance to acceleration defined by the moment of inertia.
5. The clock ( which appeared on the cover of the " Horological Journal " for August 2001 ) has a massive compound pendulum which beats at 2.5 seconds and an escape wheel which turns in five minutes.
6. It's difficult to find compound pendulum in a sentence.
7. In the process, Huygens obtained solutions to dynamical problems such as the period of an oscillating simple pendulum as well as a compound pendulum, center of oscillation and its interchangeability with the pivot point, and the concept of moment of inertia.
8. A limited edition of thirty-five half-size replicas, known as 'Concord clocks', Harrison style with grasshopper escapement and compound pendulum, was made by E . Dent and has the dimensions high, wide, deep.
9. A "'compound pendulum "'( or "'physical pendulum "') is one where the rod is not massless, and may have extended size; that is, an arbitrarily shaped rigid body swinging by a pivot.
10. The same point is called the "'center of oscillation "'for the object suspended from the pivot as a pendulum, meaning that a simple pendulum with all its mass concentrated at that point will have the same period of oscillation as the compound pendulum.
11. In 1673 Huygens had shown that the period of a rigid bar pendulum ( called a " compound pendulum " ) was equal to the period of a simple pendulum with a length equal to the distance between the center of oscillation, located under the center of gravity, that depends on the mass distribution along the pendulum.
12. The moment of inertia of a "'compound pendulum "'constructed from a thin disc mounted at the end of a thin rod that oscillates around a pivot at the other end of the rod, begins with the calculation of the moment of inertia of the thin rod and thin disc about their respective centres of mass.
