Simple Pendulum Calculator is a free online tool that displays the time period of a given simple pendulum. CoolGyan’S online simple pendulum calculator tool makes the calculation faster, and it shows the time period value in a fraction of seconds.

## How to Use the Simple Pendulum Calculator?

The procedure to use the simple pendulum calculator is as follows:

**Step 1:** Enter the length (L), acceleration of gravity (g) and x for the unknown in the respective input fields

**Step 2:** Now click the button “Calculate the Unknown” to get the time period

**Step 3:** Finally, the value of x will be displayed in the output field

### What is Meant by the Simple Pendulum?

A simple pendulum can be defined as a point mass attached to a light inextensible string and suspended from fixed support. The vertical line passing through the fixed support is the mean position of the simple pendulum. Also, the vertical distance between the point of suspension and the center of mass of the suspended body (when it is in mean position) is called the length of the simple pendulum and is denoted by L. The time period of a simple pendulum is given by the formula:

T = 2π/ω_{0} = 2π × √(L/g)
