A classical mechanics problem by Pratik ShastriClassical Mechanics Level 4
A pendulum oscillates, immersed in water. The mass of the bob is \(250 \ g\), length of the string is \(30 \ cm\), the radius of the bob is \(2 \ cm\) and density of water \(\rho_w\) is \(1000 \ kg/m^3\).
Calculate the time period of its oscillations (in seconds), considering its amplitude to be small.
\(\bullet\) Take \(g=9.8 \ m/s^2\)
\(\bullet\) Ignore drag forces.
