The Best Word Problem Ever
October 14th, 2013
The function L=a.81t^2 relates the length L in feet of a pendulum to the time t in seconds that it takes to swing. A convention center has a pendulum that is 50 ft long. Find the period (t) it takes to swing.
First you set up your equation, then you divide by 50 so that you can make the equation on one side to then get t by itself.
After you do that, square both the sides so you can get t by itself.
Finally you show your image :)
