Question

The pendulum of a certain clock has time period 2.04 s. How fast or slow does the clock run during 24 hours ?


Solution

The pendulum of the clock has time period 2.03 sec.

Now, no. of oscillation in 1 day

=24×36002

=43200

But, in each oscillation it is slower by

(2.042.00)=0.04 sec.

So, in one day it is slower by

=43200×(0.04)

=28.8 min.

So, the clock runs 28.8 minutes slower in one day.
