Physical Pendulum Calculation

A physical pendulum is simply a rigid object which swings freely about some pivot point. A pendulum consisting of an actual object allowed to rotate freely around a horizontal axis is called physical pendulum. One must need the values of period, length, acceleration of gravity, mass or moment of inertia and distance from center of mass to pivot to perform physical pendulum calculation. Just select the box you want to calculate and enter the other values in the respective text boxes.

Physical pendulum is the generalized case of the simple pendulum. This is a simple physical pendulum calculator which helps you to calculate period, center of mass or moment of inertia, mass, acceleration of gravity and distance from center of mass to pivot.
