(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Medium of PhysicsA simple pendulum is set up in a physics laboratory to determine the local acceleration due to gravity. The object suspended on the pendulum is displaced from its equilibrium position and released. It is observed that the pendulum completes one cycle with a period (T) of 2 seconds and a maximum amplitude of oscillation of 10 cm. Considering that the motion of the suspended object is Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM), answer the following questions. a) Determine the equation of SHM that describes the displacement of the object as a function of time. b) Calculate the maximum velocity of the object during its oscillation. c) Find the local acceleration due to gravity using the results from the previous questions and the formula for the period of a simple pendulum.
