1 A student carries out an experiment to find out the relationship between mass, m,
and the oscillation period, T, of an inertia balance. A piece of jigsaw blade is clamped
at one end and a plasticine ball with mass 10.0g is fixed at the other end. The
distance from the plasticine ball to the clamp is 20.0cm. The arrangement of the
apparatus for the experiment is shown in Figure 1.1.

¦
 

The jigsaw blade is displaced horizontally to one side and then released so that it
oscillates. The time for 10 oscillations, t1, is taken using a stop watch. The jigsaw blade
is oscillated again to obtain the time for 10 oscillations, t2, for the second time. The
actual readings of t1 and t2 are shown in Figure 1.2.

The experiment is repeated by using plasticine balls with masses 20.0g, 30.0g, 40.0g,
and 50.0g. The readings of the stop watch are shown in Figures 1.3, 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6.

The period of oscillation, T, of the jigsaw blade is given by the following equation :

T = tmean
10

Where tmean = t1 + t2
