Physical Pendulum

A pendulum with its mass spread throughout its length is called a physical pendulum. A typical clock pendulum is an example. Students will observe a physical pendulum and measure its period, and then construct a simple pendulum with the same period. They will see that a physical pendulum acts as if its mass is concentrated at its center of mass.
